Steve Scalise’s shared several images on his Twitter account on Sunday of the House Majority Congressman alongside his family, stating this Father’s Day “has special meaning for the Scalise family.”
Scalise has been taken to the hospital and has been there since Wednesday after he and several other Republicans were attacked with rifle fire while playing baseball.
“Steve’s greatest joy is being a father to Madison and Harrison, and a husband to Jennifer,” the message notes. “This Father’s Day has special meaning for the Scalise family, and they send their best wishes to every family, especially the dads. Take the time to be close with the ones you love. Thank you for the continued prayers, support and outpouring of love.”
Scalise got shot in the hip, which ended up a reason enough for several surgeries. Throughout the weekend, his family stated his condition had worsened from critical to serious.
“Congressman Steve Scalise is in serious condition,” the family revealed through a statement. “He underwent another surgery today, but continues to show signs of improvement.”
Back on Saturday night, Scalise’s account stated Scalise was enjoying the LSU baseball game and “rooting hard for a big Tigers win tonight!”
