just get back in the gym and keep lifting.
come on now... with the lifts in your signature, you certainly are no stranger to the iron game - this is something you should already know....

i say do nothing differnt, just get back in the gym and you will feel better afterwords. but if your still sick, i say take more time off

Usually when I get sick, I'll drop anywhere from 5-8lbs of bodyweight depending on how sick I am. It will usually take me about a month to recover and get back where I was. Fortunately, I don't get sick very often.

after a week off from sickness i started off light for the first workout then next workout when i was better my lifts were a lot better and i felt a lot stronger.. the rest was good for me. So do what your body tells you.
