Sorry to hear about your wife -- I hope it is nothing too serious.
If you want something in bloom, there are LOTS of options right now. Since you only have a couple of weeks, you probably will want to contact a vendor and purchase a plant that is already in bud. PM me and I'd be happy to recommend a couple of vendors I like. I don't usually purchase plants in bud because they cost a little more, but I have seen some beautiful options and a wide variety at several different vendors.
