Just got a text message from H. He passed his written state exam! He took the written on Friday and they promised him results Monday or Tuesday. He is now halfway to EMT certification!
He took the practical exam on the 18th, and that takes several weeks to get the results (I have no idea why). So now we play the waiting game until we know about that. But still, this is very exciting! He's worked really hard for this, and it's finally paying off.
