husband sent off his thankyou email this morning to the HR contact he met yesterday. He cc'd his friend at the company, and within minutes, the guy called and asked how the interviews went. Asked husband if he had any reservations before he went in to recommend that they hire him (!) Then about two hours later the HR rep emailed husband back asking if he could come back on Friday to meet with the VP of HR. So looks like round two of the interviews is on, and maybe this is going to work out afterall. Despite the drive, husband recognizes that this is a job, and we need him to have a job, and that it's not forever -- he can continue to look for better opportunities while he works from there. I'm sure they are out there! Thanks everyone for the prayers and good thoughts! I'll update again on Friday.
