Default huge blowoff and problem

So i had a blowoff on a black IPA I brewed on Saturday. The airlock shot out and yeast spilled out of the carboy, a lot of yeast. So i sanitized a blow off tube (which I usually use anyway) and put it back in. Problem is the beer doesn't seem like it's fermenting anymore. What should I do?

I'd take a hydrometer reading and see where it's at. I've had a blowout that had no airlock activity, but the gravity still continued to drop for another week.

Might be that all the C02 purged and has yet to build back up again...I agree, keep taking gravity readings..
