Scalise remains in critical condition after shooting

With some "truly unbelievable 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.

The doctor said Scalise has been sedated although the dosage has been turned down to allow him to respond to family members.

They said that his "risk of death" has substantially lowered than when he arrived at the hospital.

It was Wednesday morning when Scalise joined other congressmen at a congressional baseball practice for the annual game held Thursday. Six people were injured during the attack, including two congressmen, a congressional aide, a lobbyist and two police officers. He said that the greatest initial threat to Scalise's life was due to blood loss. "The doctor added, however, that Scalise will certainly be in the hospital for a considerable period of time, presumably weeks".

Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday.

Sava said Friday that there are hundreds of bullet fragments in Scalise's body, but "we have no intention to try and remove all the bullet fragments at this point". The next surgery will likely come within the next 48-hours, he said. He said this is common of gunshot wounds.

Scalise's wife, Jennifer, issued a statement saying she was thankful for the "incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes" the family has received since the shooting.

Law enforcement officials identified the shooter as 66-year-old James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, who later died from injuries sustained during a shootout with police on the scene. The officers have been credited with preventing a massacre.

The Louisiana Republican is "more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", according to a statement posted on his Twitter account. He could not give a timeline for her release from the hospital, deferring to another doctor who was not present at the news briefing, nor if she will require additional surgeries.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., paid a visit to his injured colleague at the hospital Friday. Bailey hobbled out to the pitcher's mound Thursday to a standing ovation to throw the opening pitch of the Congressional baseball game.

He said Scalise will likely have more surgeries in the coming days, as the surgeries done so far have been mostly along the lines of "damage control".
