Doctors advise Thailandís 85-year-old King Bhumibol to rest after suffering mild feve
Doctors advise Thailandís 85-year-old King Bhumibol to rest after suffering mild fever
Wednesday, January 30
BANGKOK ó Doctors have advised Thailandís King Bhumibol Adulyadej to rest after he suffered from a mild fever for a week.
The Royal Household Bureau said in a statement Tuesday that the 85-year-old king also had little appetite and was weak.
It said daily physical checkups showed the monarch was breathing slightly faster than normal.
The palace said the king suffered pain in his knees on Tuesday and doctors found they were swollen.
It said blood tests showed he did not have any bacterial infection.
The palace added that doctors have advised the king to refrain from his official duties for a while.
Bhumibol, the worldís longest-serving living monarch, entered Bangkokís Siriraj Hospital in September 2009 with a lung inflammation and has stayed there since then except for infrequent short trips.

Thai King Recovering From Mild Lung Inflammation
April 29, 2013
Thailand's 85-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej is recovering from mild lung inflammation that caused a fever.
The palace issued a statement saying the king had a high temperature and slight cough early Sunday. An X-ray showed mild inflammation in his lower lungs, and he was given medicine and fluid intravenously.
The statement said his doctors found his temperature, blood pressure and breathing rate to be normal by afternoon.
Bhumibol entered Bangkok's Siriraj Hospital in 2009 with a lung inflammation and has stayed since then except for infrequent short trips.
Thailand's monarchy once had near-universal respect among Thais, but the king's fading from public life and the palace's perceived role in the nation's political battles have tarnished the institution in recent years.
The monarch's health is closely followed by all Thais.
