HM King of Thailand recovers fully
The world's longest-reigning monarch, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand has fully recovered from his illness but will remain in hospital for a time for added recuperation, according to the Royal Household Bureau's statement.
The team of physicians had reported that His Majesty the King had fully recovered but would stay at Siriraj Hospital's Chalermprakiet Building for further recuperation under the supervision of his doctors, said the bureau in its 35th statement on the king's condition.
The medical team will provide physical therapy to revitalise his physical strength in his muscles, according to the statement. King Bhumibol, who was admitted to Siriraj Hospital on September 19 with a lung infection and fever, will be given dietary supplements under the doctors’ prescriptions.
His Majesty made public appearances during the last three months. In October, he was accompanied by doctors to the hospital's ground floor to pay homage to his late mother, Princess Srinagarindra, and King Rama V on the occasion of Chulalongkorn Memorial Day, and in early November he joined HM the Queen and other royal family members in launching their floral krathong at the hospital's pier on November 2.
On December 5, celebrating his 82nd birthday, he granted audience to the royal family, members of Cabinet, members of parliament and top bureaucrats at the Grand Palace's Amarin Winitchai Throne Hall.
