How recent did you pitch? It is probably better to get the yeast you want in the must early than to wait until the first one peters out.
However you can just go with the sweet mead yeast and make sure you treat it right. Lots of aeration the first 3-4 days. Step addition of nutrients and constant temps. It should leave a very nice sweet mead. It may be sweeter than you originally intended but it may be exactly what you want.
I tend to prefer to work with what you have rather than mess with it in an attempt to "fix" the mead. I would just see how it turns out. Maybe consider making a dry mead you could blend with it if it ends up too sweet.
