GOP Lawmaker Scalise Still Critical Though Doctors `Encouraged'

GOP Lawmaker Scalise Still Critical Though Doctors `Encouraged'

MedStar also confirmed previous reports that Scalise is showing signs of improvement - being more responsive and speaking with loved ones - following surgery Saturday.

Because the bullet shattered, there may be hundreds of fragments in Scalise's body and doctors do not intend to try to remove them all, Sava said.

The morning after visiting Scalise in the hospital, Trump said the congressman's challenges are "more difficult" than first thought. "However, Scalise will certainly be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks". A lobbyist shot multiple times and critically injured also remains hospitalized.

And even as the fans rose as one to cheer Scalise's name and the Capitol Police, there was no mistaking the lusty cheers for their own side as the game progressed.

Rep. Mo Brooks, an Alabama Republican, said his colleague "crawled into the outfield, leaving a trail of blood". According to the hospital, he sustained a single shot to his left hip, with the bullet traveling across his pelvis causing bone fractures, internal organ injury and severe bleeding.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding, Sava said.

Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone.

A Secret Servicer officer was injured Wednesday evening by a vehicle he was trying to stop from disrupting President Donald Trump's motorcade back from the hospital where two victims of the attack on a congressional baseball practice are being treated.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper on "Erin Burnett OutFront" that despite party affiliation they were both on "Team Scalise" on Thursday.

Medstar Washington Hospital Center released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.

The hospital has further stated that Scalise will need to undergo further operations.

James T. Hodgkinson, 66, allegedly opened fire on a Congressional baseball team as Republicans were practicing for an annual game to be played at Nationals Park Thursday.

Scalise was wounded when a gunman opened fire at a Republican baseball practice in Virginia on Wednesday. The shooter was an IL man, James Hodgkinson, who had lashed out against President Donald Trump and Republicans over social media. He said doctors have turned down Scalise's sedation levels enough that he has been able to respond to visiting family members.

The game at Nationals Park, Washington DC, carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Republican Mr Scalise, 51, and the determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport.

Members of the U.S. Capitol Police engaged in a shootout with the assailant on Wednesday, and lawmakers said their presence probably prevented many deaths.

"They saved a lot of lives", the president said. "He was as critical as you can be when he came in".

Should Scalise's recovery go smoothly, Sava said he didn't see Scalise's injuries stopping him from returning to his job.
