Hospital updates Rep. Scalise's condition while colleagues honor him at baseball game

Despite the hospital's comment about Scalise's progress, "critical condition" is still defined by the American Hospital Association as a state in which vital signs are unstable and in which "indicators are unfavorable". Republicans and Democrats play one another in annual event, which raises funds for charity.

A spokesman for George Washington University Hospital said that Matt Mika, a lobbyist wounded in the attack, was improving, and that as of Thursday night his condition had been upgraded from critical to serious. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. Scalise, of Louisiana, underwent surgery Wednesday night to fix a broken hip and another procedure to stem heavy bleeding.

A day after a shooter opened fire on Republican lawmakers' practice, the Congressional Baseball Game for Charity will go on as scheduled on Thursday. Hodgkinson had arrests in his background but showed required firearms licenses to an IL deputy who confronted him about shooting a cornfield last spring. Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, was fatally shot in a firefight with police. Authorities are investigating the incident but have not identified a motive.

"While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these courageous public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols", Trump spokesman Sean Spicer said Wednesday night. He has been sedated, but has been brought out of sedation periodically and been able to recognize and communicate with his family, Sava said.

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

Pushing that message of unity were the House leaders Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who told CNN's Jake Tapper on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" that despite party affiliation they were both on "Team Scalise".

Oxlade-Chamberlain ready to quit Arsenal over delay in contract talks
The lack of movement comes as a major shock given Oxlade-Chamberlain only has 12 months left on his deal. With just a year to go, clubs could be able to get their hands on the Arsenal man on a cut-price deal.

Scalise and four others were shot Wednesday morning during a Republican practice for the annual congressional baseball game.

According to Sava, the bullet fractured upon entering Scalise's hip.

Doctors expect Mr Scalise will eventually be able to walk and return to work at "full capacity". Infection remains a considerable risk in the days and weeks during Scalise's extended hospital stay, Sava said.

"As far as winning and losing, I think that's far from anybody's mind right now", he said. Then, Trump said "Let's play ball!" Griner received a shot to the ankle and was listed in good condition; Bailey was treated and released.

Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise looks like he will make an "excellent recovery", doctors say - but that wasn't always the case.
