US congressman Scalise showing improvement after being shot -lead surgeon

The Congressional Baseball Game, an annual tradition, went on as planned Thursday.

One day after the Capitol Police officer was injured protecting congressmen and aides from a gunman, Bailey drew a loud cheer from the crowd as he put aside his crutches to throw out the first pitch at the Congressional Baseball Game at Nationals Park in Washington.

Majority Whip Steve Scalise is "in some trouble, but he's a great fighter and he's going to be OK, we hope", Trump said at the White House.

On Wednesday, he underwent immediate surgery after the incident and then an additional procedure to stop bleeding.

"We are encouraged in the improvement in his condition in the last 36 hours". The bullet fractured bones and caused internal organ injuries.

When Scalise arrived in the hospital, he had an "imminent risk of death" and was "as critical as you can be", doctors also said.

The shooting has raised questions about lawmakers' security, renewed the nation's contentious debate over guns, and drawn new attention to the harsh rhetoric that reflects America's political polarisation.

Patty Jenkins Not Signed for 'Wonder Woman 2'…Yet
But there is a question whether Chris Pine , who portrays Steve Trevor in " Wonder Woman ", will return in the possible sequel . Last week Wonder Woman hit big screens across the country and the buzz around this new superhero film is still in the air.

Dr. Jack Sava, trauma director at MedStar Washington Hospital Center, says several operations have controlled the bleeding and Scalise's vital signs have stabilized.

Scalise has remained under sedation, although doctors have lightened the medication at times so that the congressman can communicate with relatives.

Lobbyist Matt Mika was shot multiple times and critically injured and remained hospitalised.

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited MedStar Washington Hospital Center on Wednesday, where they met with Officer Griner and her wife, among others, according to a senior administration official.

"My dear friend Steve Scalise took a bullet for all of us", Trump said. "He clearly knows that they're there and appreciates their presence", Sava said.

"While the president would like to attend the game and show his support for all of these fearless public servants, he has been advised that there is not enough time to follow Secret Service protocols", the press secretary said.

Scalise had been fielding balls at second base when he was shot and then dragged himself away from the infield in a trail of blood.

Scalise has received two surgeries for his injuries since Wednesday, including a surgery on Thursday in orthopedic trauma to fix a broken bone in his leg. Sava said Scalise remains in the Intensive Care Unit in critical condition.
