The ailing 93-year-old star left UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on Monday, August 16 because she refused to undergo any more surgery and chose to spend her final days at her Bel Air home.
After readmitted to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center in Los Angeles on Friday, August 13, Zsa Zsa Gabor has asked to return to her Bel Air home, her publicist John Blanchette said on Monday, August 16 as ABC News reported. Blanchette revealed that Gabor declined to undergo any more surgery and asked to spend her final days at her residence.
Blanchette further stated that doctors wanted to conduct a surgery on her liver that would give her a 50-50 chance survival rate. However, both Gabor and her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt decided "she wanted to spend her final days at home." The publicist added, "Frederick said he did not want to torture her anymore."
Blanchette confirmed that Gabor, who "is in and out of consciousness", left the medical center on Monday and returned to her home. He said, "She had a great run. She's 93. She knew five presidents... she knew kings and queens, celebrities."
On Sunday, August 15, Gabor "asked to see a priest and receive her last rites." The Hungarian-born actress was said falling into unconsciousness after the priest read her the last rites. The day earlier, she underwent a surgery to remove two blood clots.
