Dr. Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center where Scalise was taken, said several operations have managed to control the bleeding. "We have controlled his internal bleeding and his vital signs have stabilised", he added. His doctors cautioned, however, that he remained in critical condition and would "be in the hospital for some time".
President Donald Trump said Friday that Steve Scalise "took a bullet for all of us". "He remains in critical condition but has improved in the last 24 hours", the hospital said in a statement.

"Most importantly, we are forever grateful for the heroism of Special Agents Crystal Griner and David Bailey, who saved the lives of everyone at the baseball field that morning, including Steve's", Scalise's wife, Jennifer, said in the statement.
Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital. Richmond, who plays for the Democratic team, said he had visited the hospital multiple times.
"On behalf of Steve and our children, I want to thank everyone from the bottom of our hearts for the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes we have received since Wednesday's events".
Colleagues who visited Scalise sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier.
Scalise is being treated in the hospital's intensive care unit.
The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".
"Our family asks that you continue to pray for Steve, Matt Mika, Zach Barth, and all of those hurt in this attack, and keep them in your thoughts as they face recovery", the statement said.
