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.
Mr Scalise, 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 as they practiced for an annual charity baseball game between Republicans and Democrats. The bullet entered Scalise's left hip and tore through his pelvis, breaking bones, injuring organs and causing severe bleeding. With some "truly fantastic anesthesia care", the team was able to control some of the bleeding and then transfer Scalise to radiology, where he underwent another procedure to control more bleeding, Sava said. Sava says Scalise has responded to family members while he's still under sedation.
Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". The congressman has received "many units" of blood and surgeries from multiple specialized units.
Scalise was sedated, but the husband and father of two has been able to respond to his doctors and family.
