Scalise's condition upgraded to serious: He 'is speaking with his loved ones'

Bloody Leftist Hands Conservaphobia Caused Scalise Shooting

The U.S. congressman who was shot and seriously injured in an attack on Republican lawmakers is showing "signs of improvement", hospital officials said Saturday. He said doctors have turned down Scalise's sedation levels enough that he has been able to respond to visiting family members.

Although Scalise was able to talk while lying injured on the ball field, he had gone into shock by the time he was transported by helicopter to the hospital and arrived "in critical condition with an imminent risk of death", Sava said. Doctors said his prognosis was positive on Friday.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and remains hospitalized.

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

Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation officials declined to confirm media accounts that the list of names Hodgkinson carried was a "kill list"; they said the names were listed without any other comment.

Scalise suffered a rifle wound in his left hip that shattered bones, tore organs and caused severe bleeding.

Scalise's wife, Jennifer, thanked the public and administration for their "strong outpouring of love and support" in a statement Friday.

Also suffering relatively minor injuries were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.

The House of Representatives majority whip underwent another operation on Saturday, and the hospital said he was more responsive and speaking with his family.

"She is in good condition and she is in good spirits", Sava said.

The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits".

Two sources close to the congressman's family said medical staff removed a tube that had been inserted into Scalise's abdomen to prevent fluid from going into his lungs while being sedated, The Baton Rouge Advocate reported. Leaders decided the game would go on as scheduled at Nationals Park in Washington, home of the city's Major League Baseball team.
