U.S. congressman Scalise still in critical condition: Hospital

U.S. congressman Scalise still in critical condition: Hospital

After Saturday's surgery, which was not described in detail, Scalise "continues to show improvement", the hospital statement said.

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. Sava didn't address what organs were damaged.

Sava said that, while Scalise remains in critical condition, his risk of death is substantially lower now than when he came in.

Democrats easily defeated Republicans 11-2 in the 2017 Congressional Baseball Game, in an annual tradition that has taken on renewed importance in the wake of Wednesday's shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.

Sava said the congressman remains sedated but was able to "respond to family members" and physicians.

Although Scalise was able to talk on the ballfield, by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital, he was in shock.

Sava estimates there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's pelvis and says doctors don't intend to try to remove them all, as that could cause more harm than good. 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.

"We've had a very, very divided country for many years", Trump said.

During the game, a special tribute was held for Scalise, who is being treated at Medstar Washington Hospital Center. He has required surgery several times since the shooting. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

Richmond said he looks forward to the game each year as an opportunity to further his friendly rivalry with Scalise, or, as he put it, "a chance to really go after each other on the field".

Trump's comments came at the beginning of his speech in Miami Friday announcing a partial rollback of ties to Cuba - reversing changes made by President Barack Obama's administration.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday.

Scalise's Chief of Staff shared a message from the congressman's family at a Friday press conference.

Hodgkinson, a Belleville, Illinois, home inspector who had been living out of his van near the park, had a social media page filled with criticism of Republicans and the Trump administration. He's been undergoing repeat surgeries.

The game at Nationals Park on Thursday evening carried on a century-old bipartisan ritual, this one tinged with worry about Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise and the players' determination to answer the attack by coming together in sport.

Scalise had been fielding balls at second base when he was shot and then dragged himself away from the infield in a trail of blood.
