Default DFH60 stalled?

Brewed a DFH60 recipe last month. My OG was higher than expected, about 1.084 and didn't pitch a starter.(NEVER AGAIN!) Was in the primary for 2 weeks and settled at 1.022. I racked to the secondary where it has been for the past 2 weeks. Do you think I'll have any trouble with this in the bottles? Will there be enough happy yeast to carbonate? I've seen some recipes for higher gravity beers where they recommend adding fresh yeast 3 days prior to bottling. I don't want to screw this up!!!!!

You're at about 70% attenuation, without a starter, your yeast might be done.

Do you think I should pitch more?

I think your yeast is about done. Mine finished at 1.016, but I had a lower OG. At nearly 73% attenated, you won't do much better. I wouldn't repitch.

It should carbonate just fine, though.
