Zsa Zsa Gabor to have leg amputated

Story here.

She's 93 years old and has cancerous lesions on her leg, with gangrene imminent. She's also been "pretty much confined" to a wheelchair since 2002. She hadn't wanted to undergo the surgery and I can sympathize. It has to be devastating to lose a leg and it might not add any length to her life. A surgery like that on someone so frail could in fact shorten it.

Seems horrible at any age to lose a limb, but she has certainly lived a rich and interesting life.

Poor Zsa Zsa. I think one of the toughest things we face is getting older, facing your own mortality, and having to have medical interventions that we don't want. It's very tough for people getting up to the age she's at.
