Exclamation No power, code P2138, repair?

My wife was driving our 2006 Pathfinder (4WD, 70K miles) today when the check engine light turned on, the SLIP light went on and the VDC OFF light went on. She lost power to the point she was afraid that she wouldn't make it home. When I got home tonight I pulled the codes and only found P2138. From my best googling, it seems that this is a throttle position sensor issue.

I'm a "change your own oil, but that's it" type of car guy, so doing repair work myself is probably not happening with this one. Does anyone know what a repair on this might cost (ballpark) and the sort of timeline this takes to fix? I'm supposed to leave on vacation with this car tomorrow morning, and the repair shops around here are closed. I'm trying to gauge what sort of delay this will cause.

Anyone with a differing opinion on the diagnosis is also welcome to chip in.

Thanks
