Pro. Young-White, I’m sorry the term paper is a day late, but I spent most of 3 September at a scheduled medical procedure to refill the pain pump implanted in my spine with Dilaudid. It kept me knocked-out most of the day. Please remember that I’m given extra time on assignments via the Kaplan University office of student disabilities.
