Zsa Zsa Gabor Now in Hospital for OTHER Leg

Update: AP reports that Gabor has refused the surgery on her leg.

We're praying for Zsa Zsa Gabor this morning, who just lost her right leg in January due to an infection, and is now being rushed to the Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center -- according to KNX News Radio -- because her left leg isn't receiving any blood flow.

TMZ reported about 45 minutes ago that Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, had called ambulances to their Beverly Hills home because the 94-year-old former actress was "having issues regarding the blood flow to her left leg."

The saga of Gabor's many health issues goes far beyond leg problems. Over the last few years, she's had pneumonia, a stroke and a debilitating car wreck.

Then, on Monday, the Los Angeles Times reported that her mansion in the 1000 block of Bel Air Road was burglarized the day before. Gabor's royal hubby estimated that roughly $100,000 in camera equipment and artwork was stolen, "including two German-made statues he and Gabor bought while on their honeymoon in Munich 25 years ago."

As related to the Times:

"My wife was very upset about the statues. She was crying," he said. "What can I say, I don't know if she knew what was going on, but it upset her very much."

Von Anhalt told reporters the couple can't afford all Gabor's hospital bills: "I am sick and tired of hiding behind those three words, 'rich and famous.' Maybe we are famous, but we are not rich.''

Their mansion, touted as once belonging to Elvis -- but probably not, as LA Weekly's Dennis Romero revealed last month -- is currently up for sale.

Update: According to the Associated Press, the 94-year-old is refusing the operation on her second leg, though doctors are strongly urging her to do so.

Publicist John Blanchette says Gabor will be released from the hospital Friday. ...

Gabor's husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, says the actress is taking medication and has "a 50-50 chance" of surviving for another year without surgery.
