Zsa Zsa Gabor - Gabor Unaware Of Leg Amputation

Ailing actress ZSA ZSA GABOR is unaware doctors amputated half of her right leg on Friday (14Jan11), according to her husband FREDERIC PRINZ VON ANHALT.
Gabor was forced to lose her limb after a course of strong antibiotics proved ineffective in treating a serious gangrene infection.
Surgeons removed the infected part of her leg at Los Angeles' UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on Friday and the operation went without complication.
Von Anhalt revealed on Saturday (15Jan11) his wife is talking and responding well following the surgery - but she's still not aware that doctors have removed part of her leg.
He tells Reuters, "She talks to me and she smiles a little bit. I told them (doctors) not to talk to her, because I didn't want her to get hysterical and the blood pressure goes up."
Von Anhalt plans to tell Gabor about the procedure in the next few days. The actress' spokesman John Blanchette hopes the star will be able to return to her Beverly Hills home after two weeks in time to celebrate her 94th birthday on 6 February (11), but Gabor's recovery in hospital could take up to four weeks.

I pray that Zsa Zsa will be able to accept the things she cannot change; change the things she can, and, she will have the wisdom to know the difference. For someone who has known stardom, all the glitter and glory, ups-and-downs of Hollywood and life's events, I wish Zsa Zsa full recovery and emotional healing.
