Plants in nursery pots this time of year usually need water every day till planted. If you were out of town a few days and the plant went without water, chances are it succumbed. If by chance some roots are still alive, you can cut back the foliage, keep it watered, and see if any new foliage grows. You also can slip the plant out of the pot and inspect the roots. If they are dark brown or black, it likely is a lost cause.
