House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was released from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on Wednesday after nearly a week, Fox News confirmed.

Scalise, R-La., has been treated at MedStar Washington Hospital since June 14. Scalise remains in “serious” condition at the facility.

Scalise was returned to the ICU last week after contracting an infection from his gunshot wounds.

Scalise, prior to going back to the ICU on July 5, was listed in “fair condition,” but the hospital downgraded that to “serious” last week after infection concerns and a subsequent surgery. According to people close to the matter, Scalise faces at least two more surgeries, which have yet to be scheduled.

“Congressman Steve Scalise underwent surgery for the management of infection. He tolerated the procedure well,” MedStar Washington said on behalf of the Scalise family after his July 6 surgery. “He remains in serious condition. We will provide updates as appropriate.”

As AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS previously reported, Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single wound from a rifle, entering in the area of his left hip. The bullet traveled straight across toward the other hip, in what we call a transpelvic gunshot wound.  The round fragmented, and caused significant damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels.

Scalise, the House majority whip was one of five people shot when a left-wing Bernie Sanders supporting extremist opened fire as the Republican team practiced in Alexandria, Virginia.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Scalise family and with the two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, House GOP aide Zack Barth and lobbyist Matt Mika.

We will keep you updated. We ask for you all to pray for Mr. Scalise and his family.

And while you are at it, please pray for America…

God Bless.
