A Turn For The Worse?
US Congressman Scalise that was shot during a baseball practice has taken a turn for the worse and is once again in ICU…..
Lawmakers from both parties were praying for Rep. Steve Scalise Wednesday night after the congressman’s condition worsened and he was readmitted to the intensive care unit at a Washington, DC hospital. The MedStar Washington Center Hospital says the Republican, who was shot during practice for a congressional baseball game three weeks ago, was readmitted to the ICU “due to new concerns for infection” and his condition is listed as serious, Politico reports. Scalise spent nine days in intensive care after being shot in the hip during the June 14 shooting. He required several surgeries after the bullet fractured bones, injured internal organs, and caused severe bleeding.
Scalise has been hospitalized since the shooting, in which four other people were injured and gunman James Hodgkinson was fatally injured by police. Earlier this week, Rep. Phil Roe told Tennessee station WJHL that he hopes his friend will recover enough to attend the University of Tennessee and Louisiana State University football game this fall, the Washington Post reports. “He’s just out of bed. He’s not able to eat yet. But he is getting better,” Roe said.
IST would like to wish Rep. Scalise a speedy recovery and his family all the best……
