I live in Arizona and my air went out for about 4 days and got really hot both inside and outside.. Now my plant is very wilted and hanging.. How do I save it? It’s not very big only 3 leaves maybe 5″ in a pot.

Are you growing it indoors? If so, it needs more water than outside. And it needs a lot of light whether inside or outside. A plant that small doesn't need a big pot; that will cause it to get too much moisture.
If you think it was overwatered and is getting root rot, go ahead and repot it in fresh potting mix and a clean container.
