Just how bad can a dropped valve be?

Howdy all. I am just curious. This summer I took the Riot to the Oregon coast for the first time. A couple hours into the trip the Riot quit. Towed all the way back to camp by some friends canned spam commander (how embarrassing) Took the valve cover off because one of the spark plugs wasn't coming out as easily as it should. From what I could see, it looks like it dropped a valve. I put everything back together and it has just been sitting in the driveway acting like a very expensive paper weight since June. My wife is really pressuring me to fix it now. How bad do you all think it may be to fix??

Its impossible to say until the engine is taken apart. It could be only minor or more than likely a major repair.
