Publicist: Zsa Zsa Gabor has 2 blood clots removed

- Associated Press - Sunday, August 15, 2010

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Zsa Zsa Gabor's publicist says doctors removed two blood clots from the 93-year-old actress at a Los Angeles hospital. Publicist John Blanchette says Gabor was in surgery for several hours Saturday for the removal of the clots from her upper body, one of them very close to her heart.

He says Gabor is resting comfortably at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, and expects to go home either Monday or Tuesday.

Gabor was hospitalized Friday afternoon because she was bleeding and in a lot of pain.

She had broken her hip July 17, had hip replacement surgery and had just returned home from the hospital Wednesday.

Blanchette said Saturday was Gabor's 24th wedding anniversary with husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt, and the two were unable to have their traditional ice cream celebration.
