King “improving” but Princess wants prayers

17 09 2015

The Bangkok Post and most other media report that the king “is recovering from a fever and a lung infection,” at least according to the Royal Household Bureau. Four or five days ago the Bureau stated that he had more or less returned to normal.

Now they say his “fever has gone while his pulse, blood pressure, breathing and blood oxygen levels have returned to normal. Blood tests and a chest X-ray showed he was recovering well from his lung infection.”

It now states that the long ailing king “was now able to eat, but doctors will continue to supply his nutrition intravenously for now, as well as administering oxygen.”

Meanwhile, at Khaosod, Princess Chulabhorn isd reported as having “called upon all Thais to pray for her father…”. That call seems to have been earlier in the week.

Khaosod claims that the king has been in hospital “after being sent to the hospital for what the palace described as a routine check-up in May.” That was certainly not the case, with the king being rushed back to hospital from Hua Hin.

Royalists are said to be praying.
