Steve Scalise Upgraded To 'Serious Condition' And Is Speaking To Family

The family of a lobbyist shot multiple times during a Republican baseball practice outside Washington says he has undergone additional surgery and doctors expect a full recovery.

Two sources close to the congressman's family said medical staff removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while being sedated, The Baton Rouge Advocate reported.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body.

Doctors will first perform "damage control" to stop any bleeding, and address other critical problems, like preventing leakage from the bowel.

Scalise arrived at the hospital in a critical state, facing "an imminent risk of death", Sava said. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital says he is more responsive and speaking with family.

The Capitol Police Memorial Fund was added to the list of charities that will receive money raised by the game in honor of two members of Scalise's security detail who were at the Wednesday practice session and returned fire. As I sat in the dugout, I was horrified as I thought about Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the heroic Capitol Police officers, and the young former and current Capitol Hill staffers who were injured.

"By playing tonight we are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence or assaults on our democracy", said President Donald Trump, appearing on the park's giant screen but not attending.

The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits". A person who's been shot "could bleed to death within a matter of minutes", Margulies said.

Mr Trump visited the hospital late on Wednesday and said Mr Scalise was "in some trouble".

Yesterday morning's baseball practice was in preparation for the Congressional Baseball Game this evening at Nationals Park in Washington - which took place as scheduled.

"Scalise continues to show signs of improvement". A bullet could also cause bone fractures in the hip or pelvis. But at a news conference, Pelosi bristled at comments made by a few Republicans and conservative activists who blamed heated Democratic rhetoric for the incident.

House Speaker Paul Ryan has paid a visit to wounded Majority Whip Steve Scalise at the hospital. Scalise, the third most powerful Republican in the House, was shot through the hip. He declined to describe specific internal injuries.

Democrats defeated their Republican counterparts in the annual Congressional Baseball Game, but the biggest applause came for one who didn't play. Scalise is a member of the team and had been fielding balls at second base in preparation for the game when he was shot.
