Are his blood sugars in control? To heal properly they should be close to normal limits.
I would think that if your husband can breath fairly normally, the sternum has healed. It may not be aligned properly, thus you are hearing a click(annoying but not always life threatening). This usually doesnt need to be fixed as long as the person can breath.
Redo sternotomies are risky. The wire can be removed usually through the skin as an outpatient.
