ER: 4/29 Worked through changes and made all the requested alterations, even a POV shift. She loved the changes because they were exactly what she asked for, but then she still didn't go for it ultimately. Quick response (albeit at 2am ET on Friday). Strange that she was awake at that time, working. Odd.
