Lost my medical card. :(

My husband has type 1 diabetes and for the last couple of years he has been struggling to keep his numbers under control and gets super stress stressed when the DOT physical comes around to get his medical card because he’s afraid he won’t pass and lose his job. I would think with the shortages on drivers, doctors would be a slight bit more lenient and would work with the drivers more as long as they are showing an effort , right? My husband did his A1C and it was an 8.1. So, he automatically thinks he failed, yelling about having to find a new job, freaking out about not knowing what to do, and I’m trying to reassure him everything will be okay. Does anyone know if the doctors will work with the drivers and give at least a 3 to 6 month medical card so he can have time to get his A1C down? And advice or knowledge would be great. He’s in such a panic, I just want to fix this so he can calm down.
