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.

Quote from: Finn;13472
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.

Just wanted to update: my grandfather passed around eight this morning. I just received the phone call from my parents. He had a quiet evening and a painless passing, and some really great nurses who stayed with him. I wish I could have spoken to him this morning, but I'm so grateful that I got to talk to him last week and that I got to say, "I love you."  :)

Again, thank you for easing his way: I feel sure it made a difference.

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.
