Doctors Upgrade Rep. Scalise's Condition To 'Serious'

Postado Junho 20, 2017

Congressman Steve Scalise can hope to make an "excellent recovery", his trauma surgeon said Friday, even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death after getting shot at a congressional baseball practice. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers", the hospital wrote, "on behalf of the Scalise family". He has required surgery several times since the shooting.

Scalise was struck in the left hip by the gunman and collapsed on the field, according to witnesses, who also said that Scalise dragged himself from the infield as the shooting continued.

The person told The Associated Press that investigators aren't sure of the significance of the names and don't know if it was a list of people he was targeting.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was wounded along with four others.

Sava said he told Scalise's family that "I am not declaring victory until he's playing ball in his back yard with his family".

The gunman, identified by law enforcement officials as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, later died from injuries sustained during a shootout with police on the scene.

Scalise remains in critical condition at a hospital near the Capitol and has undergone multiple surgeries.

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

Ms Griner remains in hospitali at MedStar after being shot in the ankle and Mr B ailey was spotted on Friday in the Capitol, on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers. "However, Scalise will certainly be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks".

In a statement Saturday, Matt Mika's family says he will remain in the intensive care unit at George Washington University Hospital at least through the weekend.

More than $1 million has been raised for charity through the Congressional Baseball Game, its host organization announced Thursday, a day after a shooting unfolded at the Republicans' practice for the game.

Mika is a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and a former aide to Michigan Republican Rep. Tim Walberg.

The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits".
