Steve Scalise, the House majority whip who was shot during a congressional baseball practice in June, called into the GOP whip meeting Monday and seemed to be in good spirits, according to sources who spoke with Politico.

Scalise, the third ranking Republican in the House, was shot in the hip and badly wounded when a gunman opened fire at a park in Virginia on June 14 where Republican lawmakers were practicing for a charity baseball game. The Louisiana lawmaker has undergone several surgeries to repair damage to internal organs and bones, and was recently in intensive care after an infection scare.

Scalise, who was close to death upon arrival at the hospital after the shooting, told members of the meeting Monday he was eager to get back to work and also joked about the healthcare bill. Politico reported he also thanked Capitol Police officers Crystal Griner and David Bailey for saving his life.
