Doctors just released an update on House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise’s condition after he had a third surgery Saturday, upgrading his condition from critical to serious.
MedStar Washington Hospital released a statement Saturday evening detailing his improved health, saying:
Rep. Scalise “continues to show signs of improvement. He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones. The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers.”
Scalise was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after a deranged Bernie Sanders supporter opened fire on him and other Republican congressmen during a congressional baseball practice.
Doctors said he faced an “imminent risk of death” when he arrived. The hospital detailed his injuries as follows- this statement is both heartbreaking and sickening:
“Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single wound from a rifle, entering in the area of his left hip…The round fragmented, and caused significant damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels. I understand he was awake initially, but due to severe bleeding, by the time he arrived at MedSTAR by helicopter, he was in shock.”

The doctor emphasized the Rep. Scalise still has a long way to go and will require more surgeries, but it is incredible that Rep. Scalise was able to make so much progress in so little time. This is such great news for the Scalise family and for our nation.
