Original post:


As the moments go by a man who had been stripped of his health and dignity slips in and out of consciousness. The chance to help Phayap "Pat" Meesriyong's health be restored is fleeting. With a few generous friends and people he has hope.  You may know him or his name sounds familiar locally in DeKalb, IL because he opened the Thai Pavilion Restaurant in 1993 until 2005, and he loved all the people he met and was able to serve.

July 5, 2017 was the last time he could speak as before. He went through over 2 weeks of being restrained and confined with horrible bed sores. He deserves his health back after being subjected to time shared in a hospital room of 10 patients.

The time there took away his ability to walk due to neglectful practices that was debilitating in everyway. He initially went there for pneumonia. Because his blood sugar kept rising and falling he was not discharged. He suffers from COPD, Heart failure with a 20% functioning heart, stage 3 kidney disease, diabetes and most recently memory loss due to the side effect of Crestor prescribed to him.

He has bedsores that were later discovered from the private hospital from being neglected at the public hospital and not repositioned every 2 hours. He kept being reinfected by patients within the same hospital room as they shared 10 in the bed. He now has no muscle mass to stand on his own two feet.

Photos would truly do it justice but for the sake of privacy I know my father would not approve of photos being show online but rather could be seen in person.

Without your support there is no way he can come back as the man many know and love.  

Hoping the private hospital room rids him from a viral lung infection and hope all the days spent in the ICU are able to be paid for at almost $2,000 a day.  

With Love & Appreciation,

Anne Meesriyong-Kacskos 

Important:  Urgent help is needed because private hospitals do not release patients under any circumstance and being billed approximately $2,000 a day is something to deeply worry about.  He's been here since July 13th.  I thought he would be in for only 6 days!  Not over 20 days, since the hospital was recommended. 

We want to be able to move him to reasonable and a helpful military hospital where he could use his "Baht Sit Throng or Baht Jai Throng" card for those who were once employed by the government.

The hospital financial lady will not work with us to make it happen.  She wants the entire bill paid off, then we could move.  It doesn't work like that because we have to reserve a bed at the military hospital and if we can't leave yet it goes to someone else.  Timing is everything and compassion, and understanding and a balance on the bill should be okay but they do NOT trust their patients and their families to pay like in the USA.

Please keep sharing this page.  Even $5 would be helpful.  The $500 donations certainly helped.  Thank you to the high dollar donors who paid $100 and over and those who donated what they could because it shows they care and understand everything helps.  We appreciate  everyone who has donated  and or shared.  

Every positive action helps!  

Thanks in advance and Bless your Hearts of Gold for reading and caring.
