Gabor has been hospitalized several times this year.
In July, she fell out of bed and broke her hip. She underwent hip replacement surgery and was sent home about a month later. But within days, she was sent back to the hospital after developing blood clots.
In August, Gabor was given her last rites at the hospital. At that time, she declined to have any more medical procedures and returned home.
Then on August 31, she was taken to the hospital again after her husband found her unresponsive. Doctors were able to stabilize her and she was released.
