Medstar Washington Hospital Center said the congressman underwent another surgery Saturday, and that he is more responsive and speaking with family.For three months, Hodgkinson lived out of a white cargo van in a gentrified neighborhood just miles from where US laws are made.

Mr Scalise was shot as he fielded at second base during practice for an annual Republicans-Democrats baseball game.

The person told the Associated Press on Saturday that investigators weren't sure of the significance of the names and didn't know whether it was a list of people he was targeting.

During the baseball practice on Wednesday, a gunman opened fire, injuring Scalise, congressional staffer Zach Barth, Tyson Foods lobbyist Matt Mika and two members of the Capitol Police force, Crystal Griner and David Bailey.

The bullet damaged blood vessels, bones, and internal organs, Sava said.

The president said that because of the "tremendous pain and suffering he's now enduring. our country will perhaps become closer, more unified".

Trump tells senators House health bill 'mean'
Many Republicans say the closed-door negotiating process is necessary to find the right balance to get the needed votes. Although the bill gave Mr Trump his first legislative win, it was criticised by both Democrats and Senate Republicans.

The senior Republican suffered extensive injuries and was in critical condition on Wednesday night.

Mika also remained hospitalized Saturday after undergoing an additional surgery.

Steve Scalise was upgraded from "critical" to "serious condition" Saturday and continued to show signs of improvement after he was wounded in a shooting at a Republican baseball practice outside Washington.

"He is more responsive, and is speaking with his loved ones", Saturday's hospital update states. His family said in a statement he was showing "positive results" and was expected to make a full recovery. They say he is able to communicate through notes, and signed the game ball from Friday's congressional baseball game.

Mr Scalise was among five people wounded in the shooting. He added that Scalise would be in the hospital "for some time" and would need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged. Reps. Mo Brooks of Alabama, Jeff Duncan of SC and Trent Franks of Arizona were on the list, according to the Times and the Daily Caller.

Hodgkinson, the IL man who shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a congressional baseball practice last week, had with him a piece of paper with doodles and the names of three lawmakers, according to a person familiar with the case.
