Visa granted!

I can't believe it - after eight months and one week, my VISA HAS BEEN GRANTED! I had notified RM when I got my ETA several weeks ago that I'd be heading to Australia January 6. She didn't respond at the time. So on January 1 I e-mailed her a polite reminder that I'd be leaving for Australia the following week. Two days later.. BAM. VISA GRANTED. I can't tell you guys what a relief this is. My fiance and his parents and I were all together when I received it - it's been a giant hug/cryfest. I was so worried I wouldn't be approved with all the medical stuff I have - sailed right through. I provided letters from specialists, and DIBP didn't ask for anything further.

OH MY GOSH... I'm still shaking. SO HAPPY.
