BOSTON (April 22, 2013)--One week after the Boston Marathon bombings, doctors say everyone who was injured in the blasts who made it alive to a hospital now seems likely to survive.

More than 180 people were hurt in the explosions, and at least 14 of them lost all or part of a limb.

As of Monday, 51 remained hospitalized, three in critical and five in serious condition.

Among the patients in critical condition is transit system police officer who nearly bled to death in a shootout with the bombing suspects. Doctors say he is expected to recover.
