I replanted some sedum and they are very droopy; I staked them up but I am wondering is there something else I can do for them.

There's really nothing you need to do for you newly transplanted sedums. The wilting or drooping is simply a sign of transplant shock. As soon as the roots re-establish themselves the plants will perk up. For right now, they are trying to conserve energy and moisture which is why the plant looks wilted. When the roots settle in the plants will stand upright on their own. I suspect you'll lose some leaves and stems during the process. Next spring you can remove any dead plant parts. Best wishes with your garden.
