LOS ANGELES (AP) - Doctors plan to let Zsa Zsa Gabor return home Friday, about three weeks after the 93-year-old actress was hospitalized with a broken hip.

Gabor’s publicist, John Blanchette, said Saturday that she would spend the rest of the week receiving physical therapy.

Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, told Blanchette that the actress was joking with nurses but that she appeared depressed. He hoped the return home would restore her spirit.

Blanchette says Gabor broke her hip July 17 as she was lifting herself from bed into a wheel chair that tipped over. The Hungarian-born actress’ condition began to deteriorate after hip-replacement surgery days later.

Blanchette says von Anhalt bought the actress a hospital bed and was arranging for home care.
