Zsa Zsa Gabor is back in the hospital.

The "Moulin Rouge" actress and Hollywood socialite -- who is turning 94 this Sunday -- was disoriented and vomiting blood in her L.A. home Tuesday morning, her spokesman confirmed.

"Following breakfast this morning… she started coughing up blood and mucus," spokesman John Blanchette told AFP. "[The hospital] sent an ambulance to the house immediately. They've pumped the mucus out of her lungs… and they had to treat some pus pockets in her leg, where there is an infection."

Gabor's husband, Frederic Prinz Von Anhalt, later told The Associated Press doctors told him they hoped to stabilize her leg "in a few hours."

His wife was "sort of conscious" as she was rushed to the hospital, he said.

"She doesn't know what is going on. She has no memories. It could come back but the doctor doesn't know yet," van Anhalt added.

Gabor's leg was amputated on Jan. 14 at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center because of an infection. Last July, the actress, 93, broke her hip and had surgery; she had also been in the hospital due to blood clots.

Additionally, she was partly paralyzed in a car wreck in 2002 and in 2005 she suffered a stroke.  

Gabor shot to fame as a sex symbol in the 1950s and has famously been married nine times.
