The ailing actress has been in and out of hospital since she broke her hip in a fall at her Beverly Hills home last summer (10).
The 94 year old was back under doctors’ care at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday (04May11) after her own physician called an ambulance over concerns for her health.
According to TMZ.com, the actress was having troubles breathing and has been diagnosed with water on the lungs.
Her publicist John Blanchette says, “They are trying to drain her lungs to save her life.”
In January (11) the actress had part of her leg amputated to stop the spread of gangrene, and she defied death again in March (11) after she started coughing up blood at her home.
