Medstar Washington Hospital Presser – Update on Steve Scalise From Dr. Jack Sava (video)…

Dr. Jack Sava of MedStar Washington Hospital Center provides an update on the medical condition of House Majority Whip Congressman Steve Scalise. Upon arrival at the hospital Mr. Scalise was in “critical condition with imminent risk of death”.

Representative Steve Scalise had numerous surgeries to stem bleeding and initial damage to internal organs, arteries and blood vessels. Mr. Scalise vital signs have now stabilized. More surgical procedures are anticipated.

While the overall medical outlook is better today than 48 hours ago, Mr. Scalise remains in critical condition within the intensive care unit at MedStar Washington.

      Better PRAY – He is at the SAME hospital where Seth Rich was taken ALIVE, SAME DOCTOR….Seth also had info on Clintons DNC that THEY did not want Leaked. Wikileaks offers $20,ooo reward for info on Rich’s death (others offer rewards up to $250, 000. Speak even though your Voice Shakes. #Justice4SethRich #PizzaGate

    Treeper Bull Durham said it best on the Presidential Thread:

    After that very candid medical report, we can be certain the Hand of the Lord was guiding the medical workers and then the hospital staff to save Steve Scalise’s life.

    Christ has saved America, protects our President and is present because we have enough good souls praying for this troubled nation.

    Keep at it, folks. We have the high moral ground and the Love of God on our side.

    Be thankful in those prayers.

    We have much to be thankful for despite all the troubles besetting America.

        Forgot to add:

        The last surgery Matt Mika had was to rebuild lung and chest wall.

        Rifle bullets do a LOT of damage.

        Mr. Mika needs our prayers as well.

        The only good thing about all our recent wars is the fact that many more surgeons are familiar with bullet wounds and how to treat them.

        Battlefield and post-battle field experience is an intense education.

        We do not realize how traumatized medical personnel become after caring for severely wounded patients. They also need our prayers and empathy.

          Thank you for mentioning to pray for the medical personnel too, many don’t think about the care givers who face many terribly injured patients, and yet put that aside to step up and do everything in their power, to save the injured. There is many a prayer said silently in an ER. for guidance from God.

      I will post as I receive information, but I am limited in what I can post.

      Matt needs ongoing prayer. Pray his body will respond positively to each surgery. Pray that God will guide the surgeons and all attending Matt. Pray God will prevent infection.

      Pray God will bring His choice of His people to help in recovering.

      Pray as lead.

      Further surgeries will be necessary.

      Matt Mika’s family released an update on his condition this morning, saying that while he is conscious and able to communicate with doctors and family through notes, he requires the assistance of medical equipment to breathe and will need more surgeries.

      The family said Mika was shot several times in the chest and arm and suffered massive trauma. He underwent surgery Wednesday at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., and remains in the facility’s intensive care unit

    I’ve been so worried about him as I know so many of you have as well. Our prayers seem to be working, but we cannot stop now. I believe prayer is just as important now as it was at the beginning. As the surgeon said, there are still many forks in the road for him and his recovery.

    I’ve had bone splinters and cartilage floating around in my hip joint, the ball part of it. It is extremely painful even though those bits can be small. I pray he does not suffer like I and so many others have. The damage he has is far worse than mine was, I believe extensively so. It is why I will continue to pray for him and his family. I’d love to see him run and play ball with his daughter, Madison by this time next year it in the fall. I know it would mean the world to both of them.

    I appreciate the surgeon and his honest answers. I think it was wise to have done this media circus now rather than earlier.
    Be well good Treepers,

    • As far as bullet pieces floating around in Repr. Scalise’s body, that may not be as bad as it sounds. My Dad, USMarine at Iwo Jima and a couple of other places in the Pacific was wounded twice, survived quite well, but still had some schrapnel in his body for the rest of his long and productive life.

      My mother and I use to offer up multiple prayers of thanksgiving that he was returned to us!

      • Eileen says:

        If this happened just once, to Seth Rich, I would agree with you, coincidental and not necessarily indicative of anything sinister. What is causing some confusion is that numerous people have come forward and said that Seth Rich was “walking around”, before being pronounced dead a few hours later. SD just revealed that Rep Scalise was not talking; initial reports have indicated that he was and was wide awake.

        At some point, the skeptical reader would note that in both instances, there were conflicting reports of the scope of the initial injuries when admitted to the hospital. HIPAA laws mean that we really won’t see Seth Rich’s records and if something bad happens to Rep Scalise, we won’t see his records either. I read some reports that President Trump demanded a doctor change (or brought one of his own) since the reports of Rep Scalise’s condition worsening and now Rep Scalise is stable – always a good sign in a trauma unit. I have not been able to find other reports of the President’s visit, so I’m waiting for other sources to come out.

        I am following this because if Rep Scalise suffers the same fate as Seth Rich – to me that raises a red flag and it really would put the head of surgery under scrutiny, which to me is a good thing. These may be insinuations right now. Just as in the Seth Rich case, these insinuations may become more than just internet rumor.

            Wrong, it is known by detective Rod Wheeler who has stated/confirmed that Seth Rich was taken to the Washington Med Star hospital, and the doctor who treated him there was written as Dr. Sava, supposedly the same dr Sava presented now. Its a huge red flag and coincidence, not a conspiracy. Almost all information regarding Seth Rich is being withheld, missing, or cannot be obtained via FOIA so you should be very careful being so dismissive when such a large scale cover up has been conducted regarding Seth Rich and now you are watching a doctor who was tied to his treatment and death treating a member of congress.

              • Without thinking in any way of a conspiracy, when my Dad went into the hospital with a serious injury following an auto accident, my family IMMEDIATELY arranged for ALL FOUR of us, his children, plus spouses if possible, to be by his side more or less constantly on a rotating basis. First, sis from New Hampshire, then brother from Calif, then my husand and me from Oregon, then youngest sib from WashState.

                We all flew or drove to Pensacola to be there. Took us just a couple of hours to organize the whole thing. He survived and returned to Calif, where a subsequent operation did him in. I’m still angry, but we are all still talking to each other, though sometimes through gritted teeth. Medical emergencies bring out the best and the worst in people!

    When you consider the fact that Scalise was at deaths door when he was brought in on Wednesday and to hear the Dr’s say today that he has the chance to walk again and even possibly run is remarkable and a miracle. His wife’s statement really tugs at your heart. She really hit home with what she said about remembering the injured LEO’s. Without their intervention, there is no telling how many lives could have been lost including the help from Scalise’s security team. I hope and pray for the speedy recovery for all who were injured. Prayer does wonders 🙂

    James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned.

    The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination.

    The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing the sensitivity of the investigation. The list of names included Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan and Arizona Rep. Trent Franks, TheDC has confirmed.

      Reading this makes it just that much more difficult for me not to hate…with a passion…those in government positions and their followers who would commit such evil. We not only need to pray for Rep. Scalise, his family, and all those who were shot by this madman, but we also need to pray for ourselves and other peace-loving Americans. Why? Because we can not allow evil to gain a foothold in our hearts and minds. We are living in perilous times and we must remain sober and vigilant.

    What amazes me most about this tragedy is God’s coordination and timing – how so many people were brought together at just the right place and time – from the first responders to the surgical teams – together, they brought Rep Steve Salise to the improvement stage –

    President Trump was correct in his thinking – Rep Steve Salise is a fighter!

    Dr. Sava said his thinking is normally negative – but, he used the word ‘confident’ – and talked about possible future abilities and activities – even though the road ahead is a long one to full recovery – for all who have been praying unceasingly – this was great news – as I am sure it was for his family – who is most grateful for the unbelievable outpouring of LOVE!

But it is difficult to believe that many, many, many people in whatever hospital Rich was in conspired in his death. And no one but the Reddit poster had anything to say about it?

          Personally, I believe the Rich death is very suspicious and that there should be an honest investigation but I would not take the word of some unknown source on Reddit as to what actually happened. I also don’t take the word of unknown sources at WaPo, CNN, etc. for anything.
