Scalise was among those shot by a gunman who attacked a GOP team baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday.

When Scalise first arrived at the hospital, "he was in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, said in a press conference Friday. His risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was when he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, and "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Sava said.

"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.

Three days after he was shot in the hip by a high-velocity rifle, U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise has regained consciousness and is able to talk softly, having spoken with his wife Saturday morning, according to two sources close to the congressman's family.

Jennifer Scalise says in a statement that the family is "especially appreciative of the strong outpouring of love and support from our neighbors, friends, from Louisiana and across the country". Mika, a lobbyist for Tyson Foods and former congressional aide, is expected to remain in intensive care at George Washington University Hospital through the weekend.
