i agree with woozy.take the gravity reading, oxidation risk is extremely minimal. if you don't
stir it up you're not adding oxygen. if there's a krausen ring, you really don't need to worry.

Haven't seen a lot of mention about the "cost" of your time. I spend about 10 hours over
several weeks to produce a 5 gal batch (brewing, cleaning, dryhopping, bottling). If I took a
part time job for...

fermentation, so that by the time its in bottles, high temps shouldn't matter. At worst, you
may get some off flavor...

read some threads and you'll see that most likely you will end up with a drinkable beer. Since

What was the timing of all the things that you described? For instance, did the pressure
