The difference between a stumbling block and a stepping stone is how you look at it. I love that!!
Hello and welcome Simon 47 :)
My daughter who has crohns is our only child with dental issues. She had several abscesses and recently a tooth that just broke in half. I heard from others that it could be related to crohns disease.
thanks kimmidwife

yeah I actually broke a piece of tooth off on a burger.. thought it was a bit of bone in the meat , no! it was a bit of my tooth.. really though ,i'm not that shocked now when things like this happen..i just take it in stride and smile(with a broken tooth,LOL)
