Find out what is going on before you get too bummed out. For example, if rod bearings and no damage to the crank, then you have about a $1500-$2000 repair bill. Not cheap, but not the end of the world.
If the motor is really toast, then if it were me, I would look for a good used motor and sell the old motor as spare parts to Clemster.
Keep posting, lot of experience here to help you out, no matter what it turns out to be.
