Good day
The blood test indicates that he probably has a bacterial infection somewhere in his body. It may cause a sore throat, ear pain, stomach ache, diarrhoea, burning sensation while passing urine etc. If there are any such symptoms, take him to the ER. As of now he needs fresh fruits and vegetables. Let him drink enough water.
