Small Engine Repair Guys.....PLEASE HELP...

Ok, so my wife thought she was doing me a favor, by trying to cut the grass this morning. Only thing is, she put the trimmer gas in the mower, you know the 2 cycle type with the oil mixture. So once I realized what had happened, because I heard the mower sounding like crap, I immediately dumped it and put regular gas in it. The mower just barely runs now and just wants to die when it gets in any real grass. Is it done? Or is there a way to fix it without taking it to a repair guy?

Please tell me it's a simple repair, because this mower wasn't cheap.

Change the plug and clean the carb, it should be good to go after that.
