Zsa Zsa's Hubby:

She's Having Half Her Leg Amputated

1/3/2011 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband tells TMZ he is rushing Zsa Zsa to the hospital because the blood clot in her leg has spread so much ... half of her leg needs to be amputated.

Zsa Zsa Gabor Leg
Prince von Anhalt tells us he has called a private ambulance to take Zsa Zsa to the hospital. Prince says doctors advised him before the holidays to take her in and have the surgery done, but Zsa Zsa refused ...saying she wanted to be home for what could be her last holiday.

Zsa Zsa's husband says doctors came again today and said that if he didn't take her in today, she would lose her life.

As we first reported, Zsa Zsa was hospitalized back in November after she complained of pain and swelling in her legs. That's when doctors discovered the "massive blood clot."

Zsa Zsa lived for the camera for decades, she had a wonderful life and now it is nearing the end, I for one will be sad because I grew up with the Beautiful Gabor sisters always in the Fan mags.
My heart is with her daughter franchesca, I hope they have kissed and made up before it is too late...

It's disgusting. It's like they're forcing her to do something she doesn't want to do. Why can't they just make her comfortable and pain-free and let her die in peace.

First of all, no doctor is going to amputate anyone's leg because the spouse thinks it is what is best. The doctor is going to recommend what he or she thinks is best and the patient or spouse (if the patient is not able to make such a decision) is going to go from there.

Secondly, I doubt she lives long after the surgery... in fact, I'd say there is a good chance she dies DURING the surgery. She has been in poor health for many years. I doubt she was very active when she was healthy, which is causing a great number of her problems now. My grandmother was active until her stroke at the age of 93 and my granddad was very active until he died at the age of 100. Neither were ever in half as bad a shape as Zsa Zsa is now.

This woman is 93. Hasn't she been through enough. A friend of mine had his leg amputated from the knee down and spent 11 months in the hospital to hone the leg and then another 6 months of rehab.

Why can't they just make her as comfortable as possible and let her go in peace.

I was more than surprised that she lived through all of the hassles after her last surgery, hey it's her life and she is calling the shots, good for her to party one (or maybe not) last time.
