The condition of Steve Scalise, the third-ranking U.S. House Republican who was shot during a lawmakers' baseball practice on June 14, was upgraded to serious by a Washington hospital after he underwent another surgery.
The rifle-wielding 66-year-old, who died during the attack, had a history of anger aimed at Republican officials.
Sava earlier said the Louisiana congressman had been at "imminent risk of death" when he was first brought into the hospital on Wednesday, and he received many units of transfused blood. "He is more responsive and is speaking to his loved ones".
"He underwent another surgery today, but continues to show signs of improvement", it said.
As Americans recognize the incredible role fathers play in our lives this Father's Day, the holiday is said to have taken on a "special meaning" for the family of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.).

Trump added that Scalise is "having a hard time, far worse than anybody thought" following the shooting Wednesday. Also hurt but released from hospitals were two Capitol Police officers, David Bailey and Crystal Griner, and House GOP aide Zack Barth.
"While we know there will be hard and challenging days ahead for Matt and our family, the phsycians and specialists at Matt's side expect a full recovery", the statement said.
"The evidence from the shooter, this maniac who began firing at all of us, shows that he turned his religion into politics", Davis said.
During a press conference on Saturday, Scalise's trauma surgeon, Dr. Jack Sava, said he is expected to recover fully but will need "a period of healing and rehabilitation" after being discharged.
Scalise's wife, Jennifer, issued a statement saying she was thankful for the "incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes" the family has received since the shooting. "I'm prayerful he will pull through, and I hope he does", he said.
