I haven't seen your tuba, but from what you are telling me you are only a round trip to the repair shop and a one hour repair away from getting back to serious practicing...though it sounds like you can actually practice seriously before the repair is effected.
Your "job" right now is to take five deep breaths, get over your tuba not being "new" anymore, and concentrate on your performance.
Since you're a Yankee, you might want to get in the habit of carrying your dent bag by its handle (keeping the tuba only about a foot or so off the ground - a shorter distance to fall) when you're creeping over ice.
