A doctor who has evaluated her wrote in a court filing that Gabor's well-being is closely tied to her remaining in a familiar environment.

"Continued access to familiar persons and environment are crucial to her comfort and maintenance of her continued health," Dr. Debra Judelson wrote in a report submitted last month.

"She is aware of her own bedroom and is calm and well cared for by husband with assistance of two aides," Judelson wrote.

Hilton's attorney Kenneth Kossoff noted the difficulty of the case, but said he is hopeful it can be resolved before a long court fight.

"Miracles happen in mediation," Kossoff said.

"Francesca's concern is her mother's health," he said, adding that she also wants to have consistent visits with her mother.

Gabor, a Hungarian-born sexpot of the 1950s and 1960s, has been in declining health and didn't make an appearance at a February birthday party hosted at her mansion.
