House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) was one of four shooting victims, and his right-hand vote counter, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), has temporarily taken over for his friend in the House.
The 2017 Congressional Baseball Game last Thursday set a record for fundraising and ticket sales, organizers announced Tuesday, a sign that there was an outpouring of support in the days after the shooting at the Republican team's practice.
That's the word from MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The House Majority Whip "received many units of blood transfusion for ongoing hemorrhage from multiple locations".
The charity baseball game between Democrats and Republicans was played the next night. "He is now listed in fair condition and is beginning an extended period of healing and rehabilitation", according to a statement from MedStar Washington Hospital Center.
Three others were shot in addition to Scalise.

D'après le secrétaire d'Etat à l'Intérieur, les flammes se sont propagées " avec beaucoup de violence ". Plusieurs bourgades ont été touchées et un plan d'évacuation a été mis en oeuvre.
Scalise's trauma surgeon said Friday he can hope to make an "excellent recovery", even though the lawmaker arrived at the hospital Wednesday at imminent risk of death.
It remains unclear when he may be released from the hospital.
House Speaker Paul Ryan also gave an update on the Congressman saying that Scalise is "on the road to recovery". After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs.
