The Platypus and the Thesis Part V

Well, I've finished my thesis rewrites and I'll be handing it in on Monday. I've added over 20 pages of material and made extensive additions and revisions in just one month. I've triple checked the final printed copies. Wish me luck and say a prayer!

Why Platypi Have Small Ears

I've been suffering from stuffy ears for almost a month now. The weekend before last it got so bad that I had to check in with the doctor at school. He said I had a bad ear infection and put me on anti-biotics, a week later, I'm still stuffed-up, sick, disoriented and in pain so I went to see my family doctor. He said that I had an unusually bad ear infection and prescribed a stronger anti-biotic. If my ear doesn't clear up in 4 to 5 days, then I'll have to go on mega-antibiotics, steroids and see a specialist. If that doesn't do it, then I'll need to have ear tubes put in. All this with exactly one week left to go on my thesis! Argggh! Right now, I'd appreciate your prayers that this new medicine will work.
