Whew! You can climb off the rollercoaster now. I too feel sorry for the girl, but can’t imagine why her mother put everyone through this if she didn’t know for sure. I hope you and Dames get to have a good talk now, I’m sure his emotions are running everywhere. And through it all…little Kat didn’t gamble! You are fabulous girl. Once your breathing returns to a regular schedule (lol) then I’m sure you’ll get on the with the business of living a gamble-free life. Way more fun "out here" than in the casino.
