Exclamation dirt in throttle bodies. question?

Long story but there is dirt that fell into the throttle body when removing the air box and the throttle was stuck open which enabled the dirt (which was of a sand like form) into the cylinders. I know anything in the engine is unhealthy but how bad of a situation am I looking at? Is there any recommendation short of removing the top half of the motor that might help?

Thanks in advance for any helpful input.

I would try using a shop vac to suck out the sand, if it's still dry and isn't sticking to anything. Really is something I would remove the head for to clean since sand can do some nasty things to valves and cylinder walls.

Shop Vac FTW. Works like a charm (I've done this before), anything it can't get out will blow out the exhaust without too much issue..... Hopefully

Go with the shop vac and see if you can borrow an inspection cam to look inside before you start her up.
