So sorry to hear about your husband - I hope all goes well and he recovers completely. At least you had 6 good days in Chiang Mai. All the best! (The whole bottle sounds like a good solution at this point! lol...)

What a rotten thing to happen. Hopefully he will get the all clear to travel soon. (I have heard in the past how good the medical facilities are in Thailand, which must be a relief). Whole bottle I reckon!

I am very sad to hear your husband is ill. It's great to hear the staff at raming lodge and the hospital have been supportive.

That bottle looks good to me. All the best and safe travels

Sorry to hear that your husband has been taken ill. Hope all goes well for him. A friend who was travelling with us was taken ill in CM and had only good things to say about the hospital and the care he was given, also the bill at the end of seeing the doctor and specialist and all the tests was a whole $9! Travel insurance is a must for anyone going overseas for this reason.

Please let us know how he is.

Ram I - best possible hospital for farang if you need it - and so sorry to hear that you did, but the ICU unit nurses are very good. ...whole bottle is strongly suggested! Marie (nannyre)
