This week marked my 1 year anniversary in the Peace Corps application process! Hard to believe it's been a year already. I also heard back about my appeal last week. While I will still miss my original departure date in September, I'm excited to say that I will not have to wait 8-12 months to leave!!! I need to have another lab test that comes back normal in August/September and if all goes well I should be able to leave sometime after that (maybe October or November).
