"We have controlled the internal bleeding, and his vital signs have stabilized", Sava said at a press conference.

The Congressman had been awake initially but, due to severe bleeding, had gone into shock by the time he arrived at the hospital.

Sava said Scalise "sustained a single rifle wound that entered into the area of the left hip". Additional operations will be needed in the coming days to manage Scalise's abdominal injuries and other broken bones, Sava said, adding he hoped that hemorrhaging "is not going to be our biggest enemy any longer". He said doctors have turned down Mr Scalise's sedation levels enough that he has been able to respond to visiting family members.

"We fully expect him to be able to walk. hopefully, run".

A list with several names of Congress members written on it was reportedly found with the man suspected of opening fire at a GOP baseball practice on Wednesday, according to several reports.

If Scalise did not suffer nerve damage and his recovery continues without any complications, "it is possible that within three months or so, he can.be back on his feet", said Dr. Alex Jahangir, an orthopedic trauma surgeon at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, who was not involved in Scalise's care. "He clearly knows that they're there and appreciates their presence", Sava said. "We salute them, and we also salute members of Alexandria Police, Fire and Rescue", Trump said. "And because of him, and the tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring - he's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought - our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

Sava said doctors will not attempt to remove what are likely to be hundreds of bullet fragments from Scalise's body, saying the risk of such a procedure typically outweighs the potential benefits.
