Steve Scalise's condition has been upgraded to "serious" after he underwent surgery Saturday for injuries sustained in the shooting at a Republican congressional baseball practice Wednesday, the hospital treating him said in a release.
That's according to a statement from Medstar Washington Hospital Center. He has required surgery several times since the shooting. The congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and the hospital says he is more responsive and speaking with family.
He had been in critical condition since arriving at the hospital in shock after the shooting at a baseball field where members of Congress were practicing.
The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".
Medstar Washington Hospital Centre released the update on behalf of the Scalise family.
Three other lawmakers were injured in the attack and Hodgkinson, from Belleville, Illinois, was shot and killed by responding officers.
Scalise, facing "an imminent risk of death", was rushed to the hospital in a helicopter.

"I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two, three days ago", Dr Sava said. "I think that his risk of death right now is substantially lower than when he came in ... he was as critical as you can be when he came in".
Sava said he told Scalise's family that "I am not declaring victory until he's playing ball in his back yard with his family".
