Dwarf Apricot Drooping Leaves

I planted a dwarf apricot last year. Although the tree has not given fruit, it has thrived - until last week. I looked at the tree on Monday, and it looked alive and healthy. On Wednesday, every leaf was drooping. It is now Sunday, and the leaves are still drooping although none have dropped yet. The leaves are not dry to the touch - they are still quite moist. I live in the Dallas area, and the only recent change for this tree is that we had quite a bit of rain early in the week.
Does anyone have ideas about what the problem might be?
Thanks!

Too much rain can be a problem is there is poor drainage of the soil. Test the soil about 6 or so inches below ground. If overly moist, do not water. If poor drainage is a problem, try a gradual ammending of the soil around the drip line with coarse sand and mulch. The tree may also have developed a disease like fireblight, for which there is no good cure other than pruning out the bad areas. Also check for insect attack like borer holes in the trunk. Borers can be treated with chemicals.
