Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery

Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery

Doctors treating wounded House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise have upgraded his condition from "critical" to "serious".

Medstar Washington Hospital Center released the update Saturday on behalf of the Scalise family. Doctors immediately performed surgery, but additional operations will be required, the hospital said in the late-night statement. The bullet that struck Scalise tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said.

Sava said his risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was on Wednesday. He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones.

His family said they appreciate the support they've received from lawmakers and the president, and are thankful for the bravery of the special agents.

The alleged shooter, identified by police as James Hodgkinson, 66, of Belleville, Illinois, was killed in a shootout with police Wednesday morning after shooting Scalise and three others.

The Louisiana Republican is recovering from "substantial damage" he suffered when a bullet pierced his left hip and traveled directly across to the other hip, Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center said Friday.

At Friday's hospital news conference, Scalise's chief of staff Brett Horton read a statement from Jennifer Scalise, the congressman's wife. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.

The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits". Brooks said the list was short and the other names he was told of were also GOP congressmen.

"Trump also adds, as he's said previously, that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday". Scalise has been an avid participant in the game since arriving in Congress in 2008.

Scalise has undergone multiple surgeries and he is expected to need more surgeries.

The president's meaning was unclear as he made the comments at an event on Cuba policy in Miami.
