If you tell us what make and model your laptop is I will see if I can find instructions for opening the case. You will want to make sure that there isn't any moisture under the keyboard, and disassembling it to a certain degree will allow you to be at least reasonably sure that it is dry.
Hopefully the computer didn't short out while the battery was plugged in.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
