* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Elvis began having some issues late Tuesday, and by this morning, they were to the point I felt that it was time to  call Dr. Walthall and see when she wanted to schedule his hernia surgery. Since the straining and urge to potty is happening again, it's enlarging the hernia, and that's not good.

So I started him on Clindamycin (150 mg 2 times a day), and he'll go in for surgery tomorrow morning at 11:00. Like the dental back late last year, I'll be there when he goes under and when he comes to. That should help stave off some of the panic. He'll also be neutered at the same time.

So say some prayers for out little stumpy fella. We know it's possible he won't make it through the surgery because of his medical condition, but since he is in MUCH better shape than he was two years ago, I feel pretty good about it. Still, thoughts and prayers that it's an uneventful surgery and speedy recovery will be welcome.

I'm worried, but you know me: I worry. It's a really complex surgery and he has so many medical problems. But he has a very good medical team.

Yes. And they're very familiar with Elvis and his problems. And I'll be there for him as he goes under and starts waking up, so that should help him through that part.

Thanks everyone!

I suspect today will be a long day (for both Elvis and me), but I know Randall will let folks know how the surgery went after I call him.

Elvis is doing pretty well this morning, and he's had his breakfast and morning medicine.

We're home. It went really, really well and he's drunk as a skunk in his own crate, but he's at home and he can sleep it off until he's ready to rejoin the world. :)

He also ended up getting a tooth pulled and there was a pretty bad abscess going on. That was apparently hiding behind the larger problem of the hernia, but it's gone and he should feel better.

Thank you all for your donations and prayers for this little guy. I'm so proud of him.
