This morning Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the eccentric husband of ailing 93-year-old actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, must "make a life-or-death decision" about his wife's infected leg, says KTLA. Initially slated for amputation, Gabor's leg has thus far been spared, but now doctors at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center await von Anhalt's word; Gabor stands "a less than 50-percent chance of surviving the surgery," but could damage her kidneys if the leg remains on and she takes antibiotics. Gabor has been in poor health, and in and out of the hospital for the past few years.
