A current photo of Wach and his Aunt and cousin is below. The Aunt speaks English, so that's a step forward in understanding the type of care that will be needed in the future. Wach is now in the surgery recovery ward and there is talk of plastic surgery. One eye is stitched shut and he is fed liquid food via an IV as his face and mouth DON'T work and there is pipework for his nose.
Wach is nowhere near the stage of a smile. He will hopefully get there but recovery in order to walk and make his face work again is estimated at about 3 months before a return to school.
The donation campaign will be left open, but the first 50,000 Baht will be released soon. No celebratory photo will be taken until the lad is able to understand, appreciate and share the moment with the ice cream and cake.
All drops into the donation boxes below will be greatly appreciated by the family.
