Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has returned home from the hospital after being admitted for blood clots on Friday, said her husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt.Gabor is being treated with intravenous antibiotics and is also taking oral medication for a separate blood infection. Von Anhalt says if the infections don't clear up within a week, Gabor could undergo surgery.

He also said Gabor is in stable condition, and she has two round-the-clock nurses to take care of her.

The 93-year-old actress was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after doctors found massive blood clots in her legs, after she complained to her husband, Prince von Anhalt, of leg pain and swelling.

The blood clots make her more vulnerable to the possibility of a heart attack.

Gabor's health has been failing since she had hip replacement surgery in July.

She has been hospitalized several times this year and even had a priest read her last rites in August. At that time, she declined to have any more medical procedures and returned home.

But at the end of August, she was taken back to the hospital after her husband found her unresponsive, but doctors were able to stabilize her and she was released.
