Announcement No 55 of the Bureau of the Royal Household issued Wednesday quoted the Committee of Royal Physicians as saying that HM the King could do normal body movements as his heart, lungs and neurological system, according to the examination, are functioning normally so that the intravenous medication, administered to him since last Thursday, was discontinued on Tuesday.

The monarch’s general condition was significantly improving, his physicians said, and he has good appetite and is sleeping well.

King Bhumibol experienced twitching in his right hand and a slightly increased pulse rate last Thursday, before a computer scan found bleeding in his brain’s outer membrane. The monarch had been given medicine intravenously and recovered Friday morning, with a normal pulse rate and blood pressure and no more twitching.

The palace at that time said that the physicians asked that the king refrain from his royal activities for the time being.

The world’s longest-reigning monarch has been in residence at Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital since Sept 2009 when he was hospitalized with fever, fatigue and a lung inflammation. He recovered from those symptoms but remained in hospital ever since for nourishment.

His health has improved in recent months, allowing him to make a trip to the ancient capital of Ayutthaya in May.
