Avacado - Is going to survive ?


I was out for 2 weeks and due to heat my two avacado plants are dried out.
Stem still is green but all the leaves are dried out. Is this going to survive ?

Any tips to bring life to them ?

In the pot:

On the ground: I removed all the dried leaves. They kind of fell off as soon as I touched them.

All you can do is wait and see. Do not fertilize it. Water it only when the soil is dry 1" down. Wait till spring and see if it leafs out again.

I've had plants recover after 2 weeks without water
Not sure how much of a winter you have where you are ?
