LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband says the 94-year-old actress will undergo an operation at a Los Angeles hospital where she also is being treated for an infection.

Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said Sunday that doctors at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center planned to reattach a tube in Gabor's stomach that became loose and led to bleeding. The celebrity socialite was rushed to the hospital Saturday.

Von Anhalt says Gabor has opened her eyes but is not speaking or responding. He says doctors are waiting for antibiotics to take effect on the infection.

He calls his wife a "fighter" and says he's "very optimistic."

Gabor has been hospitalized repeatedly since falling out of bed and breaking her hip in July 2010. She had a leg amputated in January.
