Out of the blown head gasket woods? 900 1994

So in a related thread I reported how my accessory belt failed, causing the temperature gauge to rise rapidly to and possibly into the red, at which point I shut it down. The fan ran on for a few minutes and a small amount of coolant leaked out of the expansion tank.

With new fan belt installed, I was able to drive car home. Oil looks good. Coolant looks good in color and quantity. Car ran fine. Can I conclude that the engine was undamaged from this? Do I have to watch for any residual effects? Am I out of the woods? Can I rely again on this engine? Thanks.
