Zsa Zsa Gabor's publicist says the actress has had two blood clots removed at a Los Angeles hospital.

Publicist John Blanchette says Gabor was in surgery for several hours Saturday as doctors removed two clots from her upper body, one of them very close to her heart.

He says the 93-year-old was resting comfortably at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center, and expected to go home either Monday or Tuesday.

Gabor was hospitalized Friday afternoon because she was bleeding and in a lot of pain.

She had broken her hip July 17, had hip replacement surgery and had just returned home from the hospital Wednesday.

Blanchette said Saturday was Gabor's 24th wedding anniversary with husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt, and the two were unable to have their traditional ice cream celebration.
