Zsa Zsa Gabor returns home for her 'final days'

Veteran Hollywood actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has refused more surgery and decided to spend her final days at home, after an accident which left her hospitalised around a month ago.

Gabor, 93, experienced a series of setbacks following her hip replacement surgery last month, and was administered the last rites in hospital by a priest last weekend.

Doctors wanted to perform surgery on her liver, which they said would give her a 50-50 chance of survival. However, Gabor and her husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt decided she would spend her last days at home.

"Frederic said he did not want to torture her anymore," Gabor’s publicist John Blanchette said. He added that the star has been “in and out if consciousness.” She left a Los Angeles hospital yesterday and returned to her home in Bel Air.
Gabor, who has been a Hollywood fixture for around 60 years, was released from hospital last week but readmitted on Friday after suffering two blood clots.

She broke her hip on July 17 when she fell out of bed while watching the television game show Jeopardy. The actress was also partially paralysed in a 2002 car accident.

"She had a great run," Blanchette said. "She's 93. She knew five presidents...she knew kings and queens, celebrities."

Hungarian-born Gabor was known for calling everyone “dah-ling” in her Hungarian accent. She appeared in over 30 movies.
