* "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.

My Grandfather...
« on: November 29, 2011, 05:11:47 pm »
My grandfather's wife is on her deathbed.  She has Alzheimer's and was pretty far gone when I last saw her in June.  Since then it has gotten worse.  The doctors said it was on both sides of her brain and was put in a nursing home for a while.  Last week she stopped eating and now they are doing everything they can to make her comfortable.  She probably has only a few days left.

My main concern in all of this is my grandfather.  His first wife (my grandmother) died around this time of year (on December 4 it would be almost 30 years).  My dad says it sounds like he's holding up, but I am concerned about him.  So any positive energy would be nice.

I'll be keeping you, your grandfather and your family in my thoughts. It's not an easy thing to see, I helped my mother through this with my grandmother about 18 months ago.

((Mel and Grandfather)) That's a tough situation for all involved. Alzheimer's took my grandfather, and we're pretty sure it is taking my Mom as well...

I'm so sorry you're having to go through this.  My grandmother has Alzheimer's as well, and she's been going downhill recently.  It's difficult to watch and deal with.  Strength to you, your grandfather, and your family.
