On Friday, Dr. Jack Sava, director of trauma at MedSTAR, said he was feeling “more confident” about Scalise than when he arrived with a gunshot wound to the hip that had caused serious damage to “bones, internal organs and blood vessels and nerves.”

“I feel a lot more confident and a lot more optimistic than I did two or three days ago,” Sava explained before telling reporters that the congressman’s condition “was as critical as you can be when he came in.”
