Question: question about alternator and battery

I forgot that I hadn't undone my negative battery terminal and I had to undo my alternator and with my wrench it made contact with my car's coolant weep hole and started sparking. It sparked until I undid the negative battery terminal. My question is do yoed until I undid the negative battery terminal. My question is do you think that my alternator and battery or other things are fine? Or did this totally mess them up? I'm finishing putting my timing belt back on so I haven't been able to test them. The car is a 04 chrysler sebring convertible.
