It sounds like he's doing all that he can for you in the situation and given his pride. I understand you miss him, he's giving it until Friday and then he's coming back? .....So if you know he has his pride and that's a reason he's sticking with it, and you recognize what he's trying to do, then my suggestion would be to continue showing your support to him - whether he gets the job or not. Tell him you're proud of the kind of man he is.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the impression you've expressed what you'd like, he's listened and said he wants to give it until Friday? Roll with it.
I don't know your back-story or if he could get back to be there for your son's surgery. I do otherwise think his time-frame sounds reasonable though, and it sounds like he's trying his best. Support him in that.
