Luangpor Khoon admitted to hospital

Renowned monk Luang Phor Khoon Parisuttho was admitted to a local hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima yesterday morning suffering from a high fever and nausea.

The abbot of Wat Ban Rai in Dan Khun Thod district has been treated and diagnosed with mild sepsis. Visitors are barred from seeing the 84-year-old monk, at least for the next three days until doctors can reach a final diagnosis.
Doctors said the monk was pale and had became lethargic, and his lips were still dry as a result of a nervous malfunction, but his fever and vomiting had stopped after he received initial treatment, including intravenous antiseptic medication and a saline solution.
Close aides said the monk met with a large number of visitors during the Loy Krathong festival last Saturday and doctors said his illness could have stemmed from a lack of rest.
Luang Phor Khoon has had an immunity defection after he underwent a bypass operation seven years ago.
He still suffers from palsy stemming from a stroke three years ago, in addition to diabetes and high cholesterol levels.
