    I am no professional, but I would water the plant often, but do not let the plant stand in water. Try spraying water onto the leaves, and when they are dry I would put some sticks into the soil, and drape a sheet of plastic over the plant, but do not let the leaves touch the plastic. You might try tieing the plastic around the pot. I wish you success, because nobody want to lose a treasured plant.
