Congratulations! We got our NOA2 while Trevor was in the UK visiting me as well. Things should move much more quickly now and don't forget you can book your medical as soon as you get your LND number.

I recommend joining Saylin's NVC thread - she is a real expert when it comes to NVC procedures. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/365453-nvc-filers-may-2012/
