Story highlights

  • Zsa Zsa Gabor is rushed to an L.A. hospital on Saturday night
  • Her spokesman says a feeding tube got loose, spurring an infection
  • Her surgery Sunday to replace that tube "went very well," he says
  • The Hungarian-born actress is expected to return home soon
Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor is set to return home soon after undergoing successful surgery in Los Angeles, her spokesman said Monday.
Gabor, 94 and plagued by numerous health problems in recent years, was rushed late Saturday from her home to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, her daughter Francesca Hilton said.
The actress' spokesman, John Blanchette, later explained that Gabor's feeding tube became loose on Friday, leading to an infection.
On Sunday, around 6 p.m., she had surgery to replace that feeding tube in her stomach. The operation, which lasted about 1 1/2 hours, "went very well," Blanchette said.
Gabor should be able to return home later Monday, or Tuesday at the latest, according to her spokesman.
The Hungarian-born actress has suffered major health problems in the past year, including hip replacement surgery and a leg amputation last February. She has been unable to walk since a 2002 car accident.
The second of the three celebrated Gabor sisters, Zsa Zsa is famous for her many marriages and strong personality, as well as her acting ability.
Her more prominent films include John Huston's Toulouse-Lautrec biopic, "Moulin Rouge," in 1952; "The Story of Three Loves" in 1953; "The Girl in the Kremlin" in 1957 and Orson Welles' 1958 cult classic, "Touch of Evil."
