As I said, they moved a lot of things earlier in the timeline. Here Anakin becomes a Padawan soon after Geonosis but, again, many of the stories where he's a Padawan can take place in that time, or just change the fact that he's a Padawan and not alter much else. Does it actually state her age anywhere or are you assuming? Does Anakin's status in the order have any bearing whatsoever on the Medstar stories specifically?

Tycho, The Approaching Storm takes place before AOTC.

Just a small Buddhist-like statue and some candles, IIRC. Nothing too fancy but I thought it was an interesting little detail since I haven't really seen anything like that for the Jedi before.
