Rep. Scalise improving after baseball field shooting

"Earlier today, Congressman Steve Scalise underwent a second surgery related to his internal injuries and a broken bone in his leg", MedStar said in a statement Thursday.

When Scalise arrived in the hospital, he had an "imminent risk of death" and was "as critical as you can be", doctors also said.

Scalise, the third-ranking GOP leader in the House, "continues to show signs of improvement", MedStar Washington Hospital Center said in a statement released on behalf of his family. The hospital says Scalise "will require additional operations, and will be in the hospital for some time". He has required surgery several times since the shooting.

The bullet struck Scalise in the hip, and traveled across his body, shattering bones and passing through internal organs, causing major internal bleeding. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.

Scalise, 51, a police officer, a congressional aide and a lobbyist were wounded on Wednesday when a man identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from the St. Louis suburb of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire on the lawmakers who were practicing for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats.

Hospital officials said it is hard to predict how long the congressman will be in the hospital, but that he is expected to be able to walk and hopefully run after a period of rehabilitation.

Even with the progress over the last two days, though, Sava said Scalise will remain in the hospital for the near future. "The Scalise family greatly appreciates the outpouring of thoughts and prayers". Hodgkinson died after being shot by police.
