Hi Maryanne, a mature starter can last quite a long time when refrigerated, so I'm not surprised that your starter is responding well to your room temperature feedings! I assume that the starter wasn't displaying any obvious signs of spoilage (pink/orange coloring or mold), so you should be fine to continue with your revival efforts. In fact, you may not need to keep feeding it for 3 more days, although if you're maintaining a starter similar to ours, I would recommend twice a day feedings at room temperature. Once your starter has a pleasant aroma and is doubling in size 6-8 hours after a feeding, then you should to be good to go! You can start baking bread with it again, or give it one more feeding, let it sit out for a few hours, and then return it to the refrigerator.
