Scalise upgraded to serious condition after more surgery

Scalise upgraded to serious condition after more surgery

Congressman Steve Scalise has undergone another surgery as he recovered from Wednesday's shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.

Hodgkinson, from IL, who had lashed out against USA president Donald Trump and other Republicans over social media, was killed by Mr Scalise's security detail and other police officers.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding and "an imminent risk of death", Sava said. Medstar Washington Hospital Center said the congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and that he is more responsive and speaking with family.For three months, Hodgkinson lived out of a white cargo van in a gentrified neighborhood just miles from where US laws are made.

Numerous families that were affected lost more than one relative, said Cdr Cundy, adding that his "heart went out to them". Suspicions have grown that flammable materials were used to clad the building and accelerated the spread of the fire.


President Donald Trump said Friday that Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us".

Scalise was sedated Friday, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family.

Colleagues who visited Scalise, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier. He was shot only once, but the high-powered-rifle round traveled from his left hip across his pelvis and shattered when it struck bone.

The hospital released the statement on behalf of Scalise's family.

The officials said Friday that the significance of the list was not known. He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged. That social media and letters to the editor showed Hodgkinson to be an ardent liberal who hated congressional Republicans gave the attacks an very bad partisan overtone and inevitably led Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh and others to blame it on the left's harsh criticism of President Trump.

"I just want to wish Rep. Scalise a very, very quick recovery", Sanders said. "Thank you for the continued prayers, support, and outpouring of love".

The gunman shot four others before being fatally wounded by Capitol Police officers who were serving in Scalise's security detail. Scalise will require additional operations, Sava said, adding that it's hard to predict how long he will be in the hospital.
