WANTED: Camellia Bonsai

I recently lost a baby and recieved a Camellia Bonsai for a memorial of my daughter. She was born and died in early December and they thought it would be an appropriate gift since the tree blossoms during that time.
The plant arrived before we had to go out of town for the funeral and all of the family stuff (nine days). The person caring for our dogs was instructed to care for the plant as well, but failed to do so. We were out of town for nearly two weeks and the plant was entirely neglected.
All of the leaves are completely dried out and cracking and falling off. All of the blossoms are dried and falling. I have been watering it faithfully since we've been home (almost two weeks now) with no progress. I don't know what to do! Please help!
I might not be so upset about it if it weren't of such great sentimental value.
