Lupus Anticoagulation, INR 1.2

My husband has Lupus Anticoagulation and missed two doses of his Warfarin this week. He went in for an INR lab today and the results were a 1.2 and he should be between 2 and 3. Not to mention that one of his missed doses was two days ago, so that missed dose won't even show up in his blood for another day yet. His doctor isn't that concerned, but I am. Two years ago we found out he had this because he had three clots in his portal vein and his organs filled with blood and it couldn't get out. He nearly lost his spleen and colon. And I specifically remember the doctors saying to me that he couldn't leave the hospital til his levels were at a 1.4. So I'm just wondering if I'm being over cautious or if this is as risky as I think it is.
