Hi, I'm getting confused,again! Based on Madeleine's note: "Please DO NOT add an extra dot/period to the end of an ellipsis. If an author has used one, please leave it as is." I'm thinking that an ellipsis at the end of a sentence substitutes for the period, unless it's the author's style to add an period after an ellipsis.
