Zsa Zsa Gabor hospitalized with blood-flow problems in left leg

Zsa Zsa Gabor has circulation problems in her remaining leg. Zsa Zsa Gabor was taken to the emergency room shortly before noon Thursday after her doctor detected a problem with blood flow in her left leg during a regular weekly exam.

Gabor's personal doctor detected no blood flow in the leg, her husband, Prinz Frederic Von Anhalt, told L.A. Now.

The actress and socialite turned 94 on Super Bowl Sunday. Her right leg was amputated above the knee on  Jan. 14 to prevent the spread of gangrene. Gabor has been in and out of the hospital repeatedly with complications following surgery to replace her left hip, which she broke along with other bones in a July 2010 fall from bed. She suffered a stroke in 2005 and has been partially paralyzed since a 2002 car accident.

And in the insult-to-injury department, the Bel-Air mansion shared by the couple was burglarized early Sunday, with Von Anhalt estimating the value of missing items -- art, statues, cameras -- at $100,000.

"My wife was very upset about the statues. She was crying," he told L.A. Now on Monday. "What can I say, I don't know if she knew what was going on, but it upset her very much."

Dealilng with the burglary kept him from several parties held after Sunday's Academy Awards, he said.
