If you decide to get a new bird please remember you should quarantine the new bird(s) for 4-6 weeks.

Quarantine means housing your new bird in a different cage in a different room as far away as possible from the room your current bird(s) is in for a period of 4-6 weeks.

Budgies mask symptoms when they are ill. Symptoms may not show up for over two weeks. Often you will not even realize your bird is not well. Many budgie illnesses are airborne which is why you need to quarantine your new bird in a completely different room.

I would recommend getting a male budgie friend for Vyvyan.
They will develop a bond and become best of friends.

A finch is too flittery and skittish and not really the right species to befriend a budgie.
Cockatiels and budgies can become friends, but budgies are sometimes a bit too excited and energetic for the more docile Cockatiels.

In my opinion, when looking out for Vyvyan's best interests, another male budgie would be best.
