Zsa Zsa Gabor went home to her Bel Air mansion from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Saturday, a week earlier than expected and eight days after the Jan. 14 amputation of her right leg, says her representative.

Spokesman John Blanchette added that doctors are pleased with the progress of the former Miss Hungary, who turns 94 next month. Gabor had developed gangrene due to a blood clot in her leg that followed hip-replacement surgery last July.

A true survivor, Gabor sustained injuries from a car accident in 2002 that put her in a wheelchair, and in 2005 she suffered a stroke.

This weekend, Blanchette also said Gabor’s husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, described his wife’s condition as “feisty” and claimed she was “yelling at nurses and at him. Everything is back to normal,” the BBC reports.
