Up And Running (almost)
Three months ago Rep. Scalise was shot at a ballpark but a whacked out dumbass. He was rushed into surgery and a hard time fighting infection and such.
But today the representative returned to the floor of the House of Representatives….
Steve Scalise returned to Congress on Thursday for the first time since being shot. “You have no idea how great this feels to be back at work in the people’s House,” the majority whip told his colleagues, who gave him a standing ovation. Earlier, he tweeted, “I’m back.” The Louisiana congressman was seriously wounded in a shooting at a baseball practice three months ago, and on Thursday he thanked the members of the US Capitol Police who exchanged fire with the gunman and the physicians who saved him. He also thanked his wife, Jennifer, who watched from the visitor’s gallery. Speaker Paul Ryan welcomed Scalise with the words, “Our prayers have been answered,” per the AP.
He walked gingerly with 2 canes….but it is good to see that seems to be recovering nicely….IST wishes him continued success in his rehab…speaking from experience…it is a long hard road back.
Rep. Scalise….be well and safe…..chuq
