The bullet traveled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding.

On Thursday evening the hospital announced that Scalise had another surgery related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg.

Scalise, 51, is among four people shot by a gunman at a House Republican baseball practice Wednesday in the Washington suburbs. Hodgkinson died after being shot by police.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise looks like he will make an "excellent recovery", doctors say - but that wasn't always the case.

Whoopi Goldberg says media coverage of Trump was '98 percent' positive
But the former GOP House Speaker added , Trump "is infuriated - and legitimately, in my judgment - by this whole Russian baloney". I think that it will be interesting to watch.

The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP. Griner was in good condition "and in good spirits", Sava said.

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'.

"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in a statement Friday.

Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said in a brief interview that Democrats would be reminded of "positions they've taken in the past that are not consistent with their voice for bipartisanship today". Many players, although wearing uniforms of various professional and college baseball teams within their states and districts, wore the purple caps of Louisiana State University in Scalise's honor.

Transactions for existing homes account for four fifths of the city's total sales and are more sensitive to market changes. There were prices gains in six of the 15 first- and second-tier cities closely monitored by the NBS, unchanged from April.

As Scalise continued his grueling recovering, law enforcement officials proceeded with their investigation of the Wednesday attack at a suburban Virginia park, where shooter James Hodgkinson wounded several other people in addition to Scalise.

He arrived "in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said, adding that now, "we are encouraged by improvement in his condition". Politico reported Thursday that a lobbyist for Tyson Foods who was also shot Wednesday, Matt Mika, remains in critical condition and will require additional surgeries, his family said Thursday.

Brooks told CNN that he was contacted by Capitol Police and told his name and office number were on the list. Griner remained hospitalized at MedStar Hospital after getting shot in the ankle, and Sava described her in good condition. Another Capitol Police officer, David Bailey, who was hit by shrapnel, and a congressional aide, Zach Barth, who was shot, were previously treated and released from a hospital. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times.
