Tajlanđani su zabrinuti za svog kralja Bhumibola Adulyadeja jer ima infekciju grla.
Thais put their political differences on temporary hold for the 81st birthday of their monarch, regarded by many as semi-divine.
But their hopes that King Bhumibol Adulyadej's birthday eve address would include a call for national unity have been dashed.
There was no address.
His family say the world's longest-reigning monarch is suffering from a throat infection and is on a drip.
Many Thais say they are concerned about his health.
SOUNDBITE: Sukanya Yeesudthe saying (Thai):
"I'm really worried about the King's health. I want him to have good health and recover soon."
SOUNDBITE: Pongskorn Lertchitwutthikul saying (Thai):
"I want the Thai people to love each other to be united which is what the King wants. Our solidarity would be the best birthday present we could give to him."
Top government and military officials have been signing a book wishing the monarch well on his birthday.
When the celebrations are over the political wrangling will begin afresh.
The caretaker government has called off Monday's parliamentary session to pick a replacement for the prime minister sacked by a court for vote rigging.
If the job goes to another ally of Thaksin Shinatwatra, ousted in a coup two years ago, the anti-government People's Alliance for Democracy say their campaign of protests and disruption will start again.
