Zsa Zsa Gabor (search) was back home after a minor stroke and successful emergency surgery last week to clear a blocked artery.

"This operation was really a miracle. This operation saved her life," said her husband, Frederick von Anhalt. "She is now even better than she was before. She's walking around already."

Gabor returned to her Bel-Air home Monday, after surgery July 6 at a Los Angeles hospital. After the operation, von Anhalt said Gabor had been experiencing numbness in her hand "and couldn't pick up anything."

The 88-year-old Hungarian-born actress starred in "Moulin Rouge" in 1952 and "Queen of Outer Space" in 1958. She has appeared on TV specials, talk shows and game shows and as a guest on several series, often playing herself.

Gabor was partially paralyzed in a 2002 car accident, forcing her to use a wheelchair and walker.

"She's under a lot of stress," von Anhalt said. "She's still recovering from the accident and there's the stress with her daughter."
