Sava says infection remains a risk, after doctors performed several surgeries to stop bleeding and begin repairing abdominal and bone damage.
Scalise underwent a third surgery Thursday and was still in critical condition in the morning at a local Washington, D.C., hospital.
Sava said Scalise has been sedated throughout his hospital stay but his sedation had been "turned down" enough to see him respond to his family's presence. After Scalise was shot in the hip, the bullet traveled through his pelvis, fractured bones and injured internal organs.

Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, arrived at the hospital via helicopter in shock, with intense internal bleeding and "an imminent risk of death", Sava said.
The FBI and Alexandria Police Department said in a joint statement Thursday that federal authorities had examined the rifle and handgun recovered from the scene and determined that Hodgkinson had bought them from licensed sellers.

Hodgkinson sprayed rifle fire at Republican congressmen on Wednesday as they practiced for a charity baseball game.

Almost 25,000 tickets were sold for the game and it was on track to raise more than $1 million, roughly double what it did a year ago, organizers said.
