The indomitable Zsa Zsa Gabor apparently survived another health crisis and is expected to return home from the hospital on Sunday, her 94th birthday, says her publicist.
The veteran glamour girl had been rushed to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center on Tuesday for suspected internal bleeding, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, said he will have a cake and hold a small celebration with friends for her in their Bel Air mansion.

Zsa Zsa Gabor went home to her Bel Air mansion from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Saturday, a week earlier than expected and eight days after the Jan. 14 amputation of her right leg, says her representative.
Spokesman John Blanchette added that doctors are pleased with the progress of the former Miss Hungary, who turns 94 next month. Gabor had developed gangrene due to a blood clot in her leg that followed hip-replacement surgery last July.
A true survivor, Gabor sustained injuries from a car accident in 2002 that put her in a wheelchair, and in 2005 she suffered a stroke.

After fighting to save Zsa Zsa Gabor's right leg, doctors had to perform an above-the-knee amputation on Friday, according to her publicist.
The ailing star, 93, was being treated at Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center for a very deep, 12-inch long lesion on her lower leg, which antibiotics were unable to cure.
Since last summer, the veteran glamour girl has suffered a series of health problems, including a hip replacement.

Zsa Zsa Gabor's doctors have delayed plans to amputate her leg while they wait to see if antibiotics can turn things around for the ailing star.
"Over the next two days, the doctors are treating her with powerful antibiotics in the hope that they will affect the lesion on her lower leg," Gabor's rep John Blanchette tells PEOPLE.
Her health is still precarious, however, and he added that the lesion "is now very deep, and 12 inches long." If the antibiotics don't work, doctors "will have to amputate. She will lose the lower half of her leg below the knee."

The precarious health of Zsa Zsa Gabor took a dramatic turn Sunday night when the veteran glamour girl was again taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, this time to have part of her right leg amputated.
"They just picked her up," Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, told PEOPLE shortly after the ambulance arrived. "They may have to take her leg from the knee down."
He said further, "She wanted to stay home and have a holiday. They wanted to do this before the holiday, but now the doctors have forced us."
He added, "She is strong."

Zsa Zsa Gabor went home Saturday afternoon after having been rushed to the emergency room at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Friday afternoon for an infection in her leg.
Her husband, Frederic von Anhalt, told PEOPLE on Saturday evening that Gabor, 93, was resting at home, where she has a hospital bed and is hooked up to medication, including antibiotics for the swelling in her leg. Two nurses are monitoring the situation, he added.
Since summer, the celebrated socialite has suffered a series of health issues. On July 18, she was also rushed the medical center after falling out of bed and breaking several bones, including her right hip. Within five days she fell into critical condition and was not responding to those around her, although by Aug. 11 Gabor grew stronger and was sent home.

Now that she's sealed a deal for two books to be published next year, Betty White is already polishing up her byline with a signed piece in the Hollywood Reporter, reminiscing about her first Emmy win – in 1952.
"The Emmys weren't a big thing back then – more like a little local awards show," writes White, 88. Compared to current ceremony – the 62nd annual Emmys will air live on NBC Sunday at 8 p.m. ET – in the early days, "There were no photographers and no red carpet. You just got out of your car and walked into the dinner. It wasn't even an event where people mingled and partied. You came for the awards and left."
Nominated as best comedic actress for her early domestic sitcom, Life with Elizabeth – a sort of I Love Lucy wannabe – White was certain she'd lose to perceived frontrunner Zsa Zsa Gabor, who even took out her compact to freshen up to give her speech. Only White won.

Zsa Zsa Garbor again proved herself a survivor on Monday.
The glamour queen, believed to be 93 (she would never tell), has made it through risky anesthesia and surgery to replace a hip following a weekend fall from her bed that left her with several broken bones.
The operation, performed at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, was successful, according to Gabor's husband – her ninth – Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Gabor's publicist, John Blanchette, added, "She's a fighter, and we're hopeful that things will work out well."

Zsa Zsa Gabor is back in her Beverly Hills home after a six-day hospital stay due to flu-like symptoms, according to the glamour figure's husband, Prince Frederick von Anhalt, the Associated Press reports.
Said to be in frail health, Gabor, 92, remains partially paralyzed after a car accident in 2002 and a reported stroke in 2005.
The former Miss Hungary, the great-aunt of Paris Hilton (through her 1942-47 marriage to hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, one of Gabor's nine husbands), has long been credited as being the first celebrity who was famous for being famous.
