U.S. congressman Scalise still in critical condition - hospital

Rep. Steve Scalise is still in critical condition, but his health is improving, the Congressman's surgeon said two days after Scalise was shot at a practice for the Congressional Baseball Game.

Scalise and four others were injured Wednesday when a gunman opened fire on them at a baseball field in Alexandria, Va. The bullet that struck Scalise tore through his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs and causing severe bleeding, the hospital said.

Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks.

Sava said Scalise will require surgeries soon for abdominal and bone injuries, in addition to the two he has undergone to fix a bone in his leg broken by the bullet.

Fowler and Reed will command plenty of attention, but do not discount Kim Si-woo, who sits between the American duo at nine under. He then drilled a 300-yard second shot to around eight feet before rolling in his eagle putt to roars from the galleries.


Despite his optimism, Sava said Scalise's condition remained critical: "He will require additional operations to manage abdominal injuries and other bone injuries".

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation.

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. We also praise Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey of the Capitol Police for their heroic deeds that saved so many lives. He remains sedated but has been able to respond to his family. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in. he was as critical as you can be when he came in".

Donations were raised for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington, Washington Literacy Center, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation and, in support of Wednesday's shooting, the Capitol Police Memorial Fund.

The Republicans were on the field practicing the day before the charity game when James T. Hodgkinson opened fire and struck several members of Congress.

I would also like to personally thank all of the first responders who bravely assisted at the scene, as well as the entire staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center for their continued excellent care. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times.

"So we all owe Steve a big, big thank you", Trump added.

As for rehabilitation, Sava said he believed Scalise will be "able to walk and hopefully run" in the future.
