The temporary order was terminated with the decision at the hearing where both of you appeared
You should contact an Ohio attorney to determine if you have any appeal rights

It doesn't work in the negative. If a court refuses to do something, and it is appealed (or an objection is filed in the case of a magistrate) if a stay is granted, it doesn't force the court to issue an opposite ruling, it would only temporarily block a court ordering something in the affirmative. This can get a little abstract for people that don't deal in appellate practice or civil litigation regularly.
Hopefully you have an experienced attorney who is familiar with litigating magistrate rulings and/or domestic relations family law. If not, find an attorney immediately to discuss your options. If the trial court denies your objection, you could appeal it to the court of appeals, but I would recommend doing this without representation from an experienced appellate attorney.

NO, you are not protected. But make it clear that you do not want to me contacted. If she continues to contact you, she could be charged with trespass for coming over. If she continues to call, it could be considered telecommunications harassment.
