Dale, if you can, set out a little trace, and some dry fert's in a cup etc,
ask someone to dose once around mid week if possible. 

If not, reduce the lighting wattage, or alternatively the time the lights
are on, say from 11hs down to 8. 
Also, you can raise the lights away from the surface and that will reduce
lighting also.

It's not the end if you don't, it's only a week and nothing a prune, water
change and trim cannot take care.
I take vacations a lot, 10-18 days is starting to push things.
But I have some folks drop some stuff in for me.
