Physicians downgraded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s condition from “fair” to “serious” Wednesday, resulting in an avalanche of prayers for the Louisiana Republican and his family.

As a result, doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital Center re-admitted Scalise to the intensive care unit.
The congressman was one of five individuals shot by James T. Hodgkinson in Virginia on June 14 while practicing for an upcoming charity baseball game with Democratic lawmakers.
Fox News reported:
Sources told Fox News that doctors had anticipated that Scalise would suffer an infection related to the shooting. Sources close to the congressman indicated that they had been told from the start that the Louisianan’s recovery would have ups and downs.
The shooting in the Virginia suburb that critically wounded Scalise and injured several others has forced members of Congress to examine their security arrangements to determine if they are sufficient.
