happy to (hear/have heard) from you

Hi all, if I have this scenario:

At 2pm, a hot girl sent me a message and we chatted for a while.

Two hours later at 4pm, I sent her a message saying: "I'm so happy to (hear/have heard) from you."

I believe only "have heard" is correct because "hearing" happened before "feeling happy". Am I right?

And, what if I begin by saying "I was happy", can I then say "I was happy to hear from you"? By saying this instead of "I am happy to have heard from you", will I give the impression that I am no longer happy?

Sorry for so many questions, and thank you!
