Default Oops first time brewing mistake

Hi! I just brewed my first beer (an Australian stout). I used refrigerated wyeast (the slap activation pack). After I bottled it, I put the bottles in the refrigerator right away, not knowing that I was not supposed to do that. After 3 days I realized that the beer has to carbonate at room temp for at least a week. So I took all of the bottles out and they are now at room temp. So I am just wondering if the yeast will reactivate or if the beer is now ruined? Thanks

It'll be fine. The yeast will re-activate once it gets back to room temp.
I would let the bottles sit for at least 3 weeks before trying one.

Congrats on the first batch.
