Click to share a thought or memory on her page in the Times' guide to the Walk of Fame Zsa Zsa Gabor, who was rushed to Ronald Reagan-UCLA Medical Center on Tuesday morning with suspected internal bleeding, is having trouble recognizing her husband and doctor, according to her publicist.

Spokesman John Blanchette said Gabor began spitting up blood Tuesday morning after breakfast, about two weeks after having part of a leg amputated. Doctors suspect some type of internal bleeding. Over the weekend, Blanchette said Gabor was confused and could not recognize her husband and her regular doctor, who came to the house for a visit.

The condition of the Hungarian-born actress, 93, was not clear.

Gabor has been in and out of the hospital for complications from hip surgery performed after she fell at her Beverly Hills home. Doctors had been treating an infection with heavy-duty antibiotics.

The amputation was necessary because of poor circulation and a large ulcerated area on the leg.
