I would replace the battery, once they have been totally drained like that it really shortens the life of a battery, make sure the cable connections are very clean, and you will most likely have to deal with the alarm going off when you put in the new battery but it should deactivate when you use the key fob to lock and unlock the doors, check the fluid levels and top off if needed. Starting and engine that has sat like that always makes me nervous, especially when I can't get any oil into the cylinders before cranking it. If you have AAA you might be money ahead if you have to towed to a shop of your liking, tell them how long it has sat and you want to make sure the electrical is checked over and the engine is properly lubed before a restart is attempted cause you don't want to damage the engines internals.
