Great news, Rep. Steve Scalise is released from the hospital

[ Edited ]

Here is the statement from MedStar:

 

 July 26, 2017, 11:45 a.m.

 

Congressman Steve Scalise has made excellent progress in his recovery from a life-threatening gunshot wound six weeks ago.  Yesterday, he was discharged from MedStar Washington Hospital Center and is now beginning a period of intensive inpatient rehabilitation. He is in good spirits and is looking forward to his return to work once he completes rehabilitation. He and his family are grateful for the care he received from the trauma team as well as the other doctors, nurses, and staff of MedStar Washington Hospital Center. The family also appreciates the outpouring of prayers and support during this time.

 

God bless all those that worked so hard to save Rep. Scalise and continued good thoughts and prayers to him and his family throughout his recovery process!  Heart

Wonderful news.  He's been a real fighter against some serious injuries and infections.

I hope his family can take a breath now, too; it must have been incredibly hard and sorrowful for them during the initial event and the subsequent infection.

That is great news. Thanks so much @momtochloe for the update. I haven't really been keeping up with news this summer as I usually do. 

 

This has not only been trying and a test for him but his family also. I certainly wish the best for all of them. He seems like a real fighter though.
