Thanks for sharing the information and congratulations. It seems that you had been very lucky to be able to adjust your status after your application was put on hold. I was thinking of withdrawing my current pending application for adjustment of status and reapplying as the spouse of a naturalized citizen. I did consult two different attorneys and I was advised against it. I was told that when I file the petition for adjustment the service will examine all the facts surrounding the withdrawn application and it is more than likely that the new petition will be put on hold. I will try to seek some more legal advice about this possibility.
