Yikes! Good, but confusing news

Another 5AM email was received this morning.

This time it was the same cryptic message as the previous one - - - "Peace Corps has updated your Application Status account."
My immediate check of my PC Toolkit revealed that my medical documentation is now:

"Complete. A decision has been reached regarding your medical review. Please look for a letter in the mail."

But, wait, my Toolkit also still has that puzzling Legal HOLD in those ominous bold red capital letters.
("Your legal eligibility to serve in the Peace Corps is currently under review.") My legal eligibility to serve is under review, yet they are sending me mail about my medical clearance?

Alas, feeling good but can't shake the anxiety and still have to wait. Maybe the USPS will deliver an answer, or at least a clue. Maybe (!)

Must maintain a positive mental attitude and resume being patient.

  4. Oops. Made a mistake in previous post; it posted before I was finished. Now I have learned that we cannot totally eliminate a posting. Everyone else probably already knew that. Now I do too.
