Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery

Lobbyist shot is expected to make full recovery

The condition of Steve Scalise, the third-ranking U.S. House Republican who was shot during a lawmakers' baseball practice on June 14, was upgraded to serious by a Washington hospital after he underwent another surgery.

Medstar Washington Hospital Center released the update on behalf of the Scalise family. He's been sedated since then, the doctor added, "but we've been able to turn that sedation down enough for him to respond to his family members, and he clearly knows that they're there and appreciates their presence".

Sava said that doctors on Thursday had operated on him to fix the broken bone.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot in the chest at the baseball practice.

The president spoke about the 51-year-old from Louisiana again Friday during a speech in Miami.

James Hodgkinson, who is from downstate IL, had a list of three Republican congressmen in his pocket.

While Scalise continues his recovery, groups and people are getting out the message for people to donate blood as a replenishment for the congressman.

Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.

Scalise was shot in the hip and taken to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, where he underwent his first surgery after the attack.

"I was not that surprised because she has all the components to do what she did", says guidance counselor Irene Bademosi. Doctors said Friday the bullet entered at his hip and traveled across his body, causing severe damage to internal organs.

As for Scalise, he's still in critical condition, but he's improving.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.

The attack cast a pall over Washington Wednesday, but leaders of both major parties vowed to return to business Thursday, and the annual congressional baseball game went on as scheduled that night.
