While the news on House Majority Whip Steve Scalise’s health is on the upswing, he still has some hills to climb.

On Thursday, Scalise underwent another surgery to manage a deep-tissue infection that came as a result of wounds sustained in last month’s ball field shooting in Alexandria, Virginia.

A statement from Scalise’s office explained the Louisiana representative’s condition:

“Congressman Steve Scalise remains hospitalized at MedStar Washington Hospital Center,” the statement read. “Today, he underwent surgery for the management of deep tissue infection related to his bullet wounds. He is in fair condition, and will require careful monitoring to see if and when further interventions are necessary.”

Scalise, while improving, was moved back to the Intensive Care Unit last week, due to the infection.

Continued prayers for Representative Scalise and his healing.

Also, continued prayers for this nation, that the temperature go down and we find our way back to a new age of civility and grace. What happened to Steve Scalise should never happen again.
