House Majority Whip Steve Scalise will appear Sunday on CBS’s “60 Minutes” to discuss his recovery process after he was shot at an annual congressional baseball team practice in June.

Scalise and his wife Jennifer Scalise will discuss the brutal attack and the GOP representative’s long recovery during an interview with Norah O’Donnell that will air on Sunday.

WATCH:

Scalise is still re-learning the ability to walk after spending several weeks fighting for his life and battling multiple infections at MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Six weeks after the shooting, he was transferred to a Washington, D.C., rehabilitation center, where he has been for months.

Scalise issued his first public remarks since the shooting last Thursday, saying he could not wait to return to home. (RELATED: Here’s How The GOP Baseball Shooting Occurred, Step-By-Step)

“I wish I could be there in person but I’m still recovering at a rehabilitation hospital and I can tell you, I cannot wait til the day that I can get back home,” Scalise said last Thursday.
