Get in touch with an immigration attorney immediately.  You have to go by the "latest" I-94 date and in your case the latest I-94 is the one you received at the POE, immigrations.  You may have to leave the country, get new visa stamping and then enter back OR file for another H1b extension "nun pro tunc".   Good Luck.
