Doctors are to provide an update on Representative Steve Scalise.

Yesterday morning's baseball practice was in preparation for the Congressional Baseball Game this evening at Nationals Park in Washington - which took place as scheduled.

Sava said doctors have controlled Scalise's internal bleeding and his vital signs are stable but that infection remains a serious risk.

As for Scalise, he's still in critical condition, but he's improving.

The lead trauma surgeon did not specify which organs were damaged, but the pelvis contains the bladder, colon, ureters from the kidneys, as well as major blood vessels and nerves. He remains sedated but has been able to respond to his family.

Scalise probably has hundreds of bullet fragments in his body, and doctors don't plan to remove them because usually there is more risk than benefit in doing so, Sava said. "In Washington, we have our disagreements, but we all agree that we are here to serve this nation we love and the people who call it home".

The crowd started clapping and chanting United States of America after the first pitch was thrown by injured Capitol Police Officer David Bailey, one of the two officers on the congressman's security detail who've been credited with saving his life and potentially many others.

"He's having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought", he said, adding that he hoped the country could become more unified in the aftermath of the shooting. The FBI continues to process evidence in an effort to assess the potential motivations of the shooter, the agency said in a statement Friday. Scalise was hit as a gunman sprayed bullets into a GOP congressional baseball practice outside Washington D.C.

Scalise received numerous blood transfusions as surgeons worked to fix his torn blood vessels and other wounds, Sava said, adding: "We are encouraged by improvement in his condition over the last 36 hours".

The president's meaning was unclear as he made the comments at an event on Cuba policy in Miami. As majority whip, he is the chief vote counter in the Republican conference.

President Donald Trump, who visited Scalise in the hospital on Wednesday, sent a video message that played at the start of the game.

Sava said he was surprised by initial media reports that said Scalise was in stable condition. The team doesn't plan on removing them all soon: The Congressman has already undergone multiple surgeries in the last 36 hours. The proceeds from the sale of tickets would go to benefit charities, including the Washington Literacy Center, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington, the Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, and the Fallen Officers Fund, according to the website of a congressional baseball game. During the visit, Trump told Scalise that the prayers being offered in his behalf were innumerable.
