So where's Ivan???

I've only seen glimpses of Viv since her return (I've loved/hated the character and I'm really glad to see Louise Sorel back on Days)... but where's Ivan?  Viv just isn't the same without him!  Didn't they last exit to get married or something? Ivan was so devoted to his, "Madame"... and the two played off each other so well! I haven't heard any rumblings about Ivan G'vera reprising his role... but I'd sure get a kick out of seeing him back in Salem, at his Madame's beck and call!   Jenn
