Zsa Zsa Gabor went home Saturday afternoon after having been rushed to the emergency room at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center Friday afternoon for an infection in her leg.

Her husband, Frederic von Anhalt, told PEOPLE on Saturday evening that Gabor, 93, was resting at home, where she has a hospital bed and is hooked up to medication, including antibiotics for the swelling in her leg. Two nurses are monitoring the situation, he added.

Since summer, the celebrated socialite has suffered a series of health issues. On July 18, she was also rushed the medical center after falling out of bed and breaking several bones, including her right hip. Within five days she fell into critical condition and was not responding to those around her, although by Aug. 11 Gabor grew stronger and was sent home.

Two days later, however, she was taken back to the hospital due to complications from the hip-replacement, and on Aug. 15 Gabor requested last rites from a Catholic priest.

When she subsequently refused a liver operation, it was decided she would spend her final days at home – though on Aug. 31, said to be in pain and unconscious, she was again rushed back to the hospital – and again returned home a few days later.
