Malenda, you are so very welcome!* I'm sure your Sweedish ivy will bounce back.* If not, you can always start with the 'new' cuttings your hubby supplied!* :?* I once left my ex in charge while I was away for a month.* I left notes on the plants like:
water when dry to the touch
keep slightly moist
I came home to some plants that had succomed to Saraha Desert-like conditions and others that looked as if they'd been kept in a swamp!* I lost many plants that year.* :(* That wasn't the reason he became my ex though.* :D
Glad I could help,
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
