* "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: August 08, 2011, 01:31:47 pm »
My grandfather, my father's father, was diagnosed with MG (Myasthenia Gravis) and ALS earlier this year after having increasing muscle weakness and several bad falls. The doctors gave him a couple of years, max, for prognosis.


He was admitted to the hospital again very recently to do an infusion to help strengthen his antibodies. He had some issues swallowing. They did a CT scan and found a mass in and around his esophagus.

The doctors are doing a scope to confirm their suspicions of cancer, but there is not much that can be done whether it is cancer or not. And they've finally told us that it is probably a matter of weeks now.


So, I guess what I'm asking for are prayers for my dad and my extended family, and for easing for the way for him.

Thanks y'all.

Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Recently, he underwent surgery to have a stint put in to help with the swallowing. He was doing very well, and the doctors planned to let him go home today.

Unfortunately, yesterday he developed a fever: he has a bacterial infection, and the doctors determined to to be keep him in the hospital to receive lots of medication.


This morning, my mom called me to say that he is fading fast. My father is driving from Houston to Austin, and my mom is on her way. I should be able to talk to him on the phone a little later this morning.

I would be so grateful for prayers for safe travels for my family, and to continue to ease the way for my Papa.

Thank you again.
