Ms. SS--Celiac is a genetic, autoimmune disease. That means we are born with the necessary gene, but we also need a trigger (virus, surgery, stress, etc.) and gluten to activate it. There is no way that we can 'catch' it from either a pet or another person. It tends to run in families, so more than one person in a family can have it, but they didn't catch it from one another. With a pet, it's coincidance :) . PS--did you notice in the Soprano's that the common link between a lot of the stories was stomach troubles? Was going to PM you, but since I'm here......
