Zsa Zsa Gabor - Gabor's Husband Must Make Amputation Decision By Friday

ZSA ZSA GABOR's husband PRINCE FREDERIC VON ANHALT must make a decision by Friday (07Jan11) on whether doctors should amputate his wife's leg.
The 93-year-old actress was taken to UCLA Medical Center on Sunday (02Jan11) after a spreading lesion began showing signs of gangrene.
Doctors planned to amputate part of her leg but delayed the operation in the hope that powerful antibiotics would help clear up the lesion.
That hasn't worked and now von Anhalt has revealed he must decide whether or not to put his wife's life at risk, and give medics the OK to proceed with surgery.
Putting Gabor under anaesthesia will reportedly give her a less than 50 per cent chance of surviving the surgery, and if he decides against the operation, the strong antibiotics she'll be forced to take could bring about kidney failure, reports TMZ.com.

This is discouraging news. However, Zsa Zsa's husband must consider the 50/50 percent chance with the amputation surgery offers some hope of success vs the strong medications used alone to cure the gangrene in her leg, with the risk of kidney failure ultimately.I question, is Zsa Zsa in a dire condition that she cannot make the decision for herself? Doctors present the question regarding the quality of life the person will experience when living with a grave condition.Zsa Zsa has lived a long and productive life. I personally encourage them to pray fervently, have faith in the Lord, who can do all things, if it be His Will.
