Plug it in, but slow down the increase so that it only goes up a degree or 2 every couple of hours... hopefully your fish will be fine!

I accidenmtly forgot to plug it in after a water change, and the temperature was like that for a week, since I don't regularly check temperature anymore. they were fine, but the jump from 80 to 70 is different than the jump from 76 to 70. I guess you should be careful and raise the temperature over a few days.

Funnily enough I have always practiced the opposite, if the temp goes low, I always thought it was better to raise the temp back up as quick as possible (Over a few hours rather than a few day).

In other words, plug it back in and let the heater do it's stuff.

Well its up to 76 in like 8 hours and the fish are in a way better mood so I think they will be alright if it increses like that back up to 80 so thank you all for the advice!!!
