Well, since this was eight days ago and Jared has not been back we can only assume he got it figured out, or hopefully he called an electrician because he sounded WAY over his head.
Probably just another case of posting a question all over the internet and forgetting where they all are. Unfortunately it is pretty typical to make one post generating a lot of questions but never return to give more details.
I personally am not sure WHY it is folks feel the need to undo ALL the splices in a box when removing a fixture. There is NO reason to do this and almost always winds up like Jared's situation.
Jared, if you are out there please post back and let us know how you did.
