Well, first you should either get a new bassist or figure out a schedule where you can still play together on a regular basis.

Just get together and jam, and see how you guys work together, if you can't work with someone (i.e. they don't have anything to contribute, don't want to help in creating songs and rather someone else makes it and they play it), you should think about replacing them. If you can work with this bassist you have still, that's good, but if not, I agree on replacing them.

And have fun. Don't take it with a business approach, just have fun with it. Fool around while jamming. etc. etc.
