    According to her publicist, doctors at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center are "guardedly optimistic" that Gabor will recover two days after losing consciousness at her Bel-Air home.

    A tube that had detached from her stomach, causing internal bleeding and sending Gabor's temperature spiking on Saturday morning. Her 68-year-old husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, called 911 whereupon an ambulance rushed Gabor to the ER.

    He told the Los Angeles Times on Sunday that the Moulin Rouge star has since been able to open her eyes and squeeze his hand, though she hasn't been able to move or speak.

    "She's a big fighter," he said. "I always feel optimistic because I know her."

    After breaking her left hip in July 2010, Gabor has made several emergency trips to the hospital. In January, a portion of her right leg was amputated due to an infection of gangrene and she reportedly received last rites from a priest in August.
