"The congressman's status remains critical", Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, told reporters.
"It's been much more hard than people even thought at that time", President Trump said of Scalise. Though, the postgame scene became one of unity and camaraderie as the Democrats presented the trophy to Scalise, who is still in critical condition after the attack.
Sava declined to put a timeline on when that would happen, or when Scalise, 51, would be able to leave the hospital.
His risk of death is "substantially lower" than it was when he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday, and "I think that an excellent recovery is a good possibility", Sava said. The bullet caused massive bleeding, and damaged bones and internal organs.
Colleagues who visited Scalise sounded generally upbeat, but spoke more in terms of hopes than the confident predictions of the immediate aftermath a day earlier.
Sava said he told Scalise's family that "I am not declaring victory until he's playing ball in his back yard with his family".
Once recovered, Scalise will be able to walk and hopefully run, the doctor said.
A gunman opened fire on the Republican baseball team's practice before Thursday's annual charity baseball game, critically wounding Scalise, R-La., and injuring three other people as horrified legislators and staffers scrambled for cover amid a barrage of bullets.

"We've worked hard and I believe now we're well-prepared for the opening game", Zenit midfielder Igor Smolnikov told Russian TV. Having a Confederations Cup exactly one year ahead of the World Cup, at peak time for European leagues, would not be acceptable.
"Had Steve been sick, or exhausted or lazy and didn't go to practice, then you would have saw a full-fledged massacre", Richmond said. Capitol Police said they had "no evidence to suggest that the purchases were not lawful".
Members of both parties said they needed to soften rhetorical attacks on each other, if only to set a better example for a public that seems increasingly divided into hostile political camps.
Doctors at MedStar Washington Hospital, where Rep. Scalise is being treated, discussed his condition on Friday saying that they believed he would be in the hospital for a considerable amount of time, possibly weeks.
Since then, the lawmaker has undergone multiple surgeries and procedures to stop the bleeding and fix bone.
The Louisiana Republican was shot in the hip Wednesday morning in the baseball practice shooting by an IL man with grudges against President Donald Trump and the GOP. The assailant had nursed grievances against President Donald Trump and the GOP - and was shot by police and later died. According to Hodgkinson's social-media history and other reports, he expressed broad dissent against Trump and Republican policies.
Hodgkinson contacted both of his state's Democratic senators frequently, always through email links on their websites, spokesmen said Friday.
As House members mulled their own safety at the Capitol, there was renewed focus on how much of a police presence members felt would be appropriate.
"Our family asks that you continue to pray for Steve, Matt Mika, Zach Barth, and all of those hurt in this attack, and keep them in your thoughts as they face recovery".
