Query question

I have a query that pulls some column values. One of the columns is a date called "Upload Date".

ex. Select this, that, theother, Uploaddate
      From thistable
      Where status=1

Now I want to basically add 1 more column called "Completed Date" to my resultset. For this,I would need to tweak the Where clause.

  ex. Select this, that, theother,CompletedDate      
         From thistable
        Where status=3

Then I want to Use DateDiff() function to get the days difference between "Upload Date" and "CompletedDate"  and call that value "Turnaround" .

So essentially if we left the where clause out what I want is this :
  ex. Select this, that, theother,UploadDate ,CompletedDate,Turnaround"    
         From thistable


How to do it? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

What would you want to see for Turnaround when the status value is not 3 (complete)?

The general query would look like:
Select this, that, theother,UploadDate ,CompletedDate, DATEDIFF(day, UploadDate, CompletedDate) AS Turnaround From thistable

I assume that you have UploadDate and CompletedDate in two different rows for the same combination of this,that and theother.
You can try like this.
select this,that,theother,DATEDIFF(DAY,UploadDate,CompletedDate)
  from (
select this,that,theother,
       max(Case Status when 1 then UploadDate end) UploadDate,
       max(Case Status when 3 then CompletedDate end) CompletedDate
  from thistable
 group by this,that,theother) t1

You need a field that identifies the record when it is uploaded and when it is completed

then the query could be
Select this, that, theother, Uploaddate, B.CompletedDate, DATEDIFF(day, A.UploadDate, B.CompletedDate) AS Turnaround
From thistable A
inner join (select SomeID, CompletedDate
            From thistable
            Where status=3) B on B.SomeID = A.SomeID
where A.status=1
