Nam Jai came to see us this morning. She went home last night and drew a portrait of our granddaughter, Angel (Pawn Sawan). Oh, it is so beautiful. She does not know it but I had a portrait drawn of all 3 of my girls when they were younger. Now, I can hang this portrait with her mother’s portrait.
We are going to the Psychiatric Hospital this morning and the Huai Hong Khrai Royal Development Study Center this afternoon
I have requested Amoxicillin and cough medicine with codeine so we can start to get my student better. She cannot have a fever on our return trip home or they might quarantine her. When we go through the Korean airport they have a scanning device that measures body temperature. Your body is displayed on a computer screen and your body appears in various colors depending on your body temperature. So, there is no way to get her through except if we give her Tylenol before we go through the checkpoint. She has had a low-grade fever but I am hoping that it will be under control shortly.
The amoxicillin has arrived and has been started. We are still waiting for the cough medicine. At least my student is able to get some rest today.
Tonight Aj Maew is to join us again along with 11 students from BCN in Uttaradit (BCNU). We were to leave BCNC in the morning and travel to the Campat Ban MeaKai to serve as health-volunteers. This is an area that has been hit hard by disaster; floods. We were going to spend Saturday and Sunday working to help the people recover from the disaster. But, the plan was cancelled on Wednesday. The monk that came from Bangkok and visited Maegumpong on Wednesday will be visiting this village on the weekend. So, they must prepare for the big celebration on Saturday and have the ceremony on Sunday. So, we are going to be working locally with the orphans and the elderly. I am not sure yet what we will be doing but I am sure we will enjoy it.
I forgot to mention that the other day while the students were shopping, they saw a famous Thai actor. The Thai buddies were so excited. They asked him if they could get a picture with him and he said, “Yes”. So, now all of the students have a picture with a famous Thai actor. The funny thing is, the Thai buddies did not know his name.
