House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., has taken a turn for the worse in his recovery from gunshot wounds suffered in the attack on the Republican Party's Congressional Baseball Game practice last month.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center, which has been treating the third-ranking House Republican, issued the following statement Wednesday evening:

Congressman Steve Scalise has been readmitted to the Intensive Care Unit at MedStar Washington Hospital Center due to new concerns for infection. His condition is listed as serious. We will provide another update tomorrow, July 6.

The threat of infection, simply due to the extent of Scalise's injuries, was always high. A member of the congressman's staff told the press Wednesday night this situation was anticipated. But, it's a somber turn of events nonetheless.

Please continue to keep him, his family and those involved in his treatment in your prayers.
