There are websites that help you calculate the number of days between dates. I would suggest to either use those helpful sites or simply take a calendar and add up days spent outside the US, and see whether you have documentation to prove absences from the US, in order to recapture time spent outside the US. Otherwise, take the time and initiative to contact an immigration attorney to go through the information with you.
I would not an attorney to analyze this for free

This question is way too specific and time consuming to be answered in this forum. I agree with my colleague, no way you should be asking a lawyer to answer this question for free.
It would be a disservice bordering on malpractice to advise you on your case specific details without meeting you and examining all relevant case documents to provide a legally accurate opinion.

Do your own calculations, please. Or ask the attorney working on your extension paperwork. If you want a 3rd option, then that would involve paying an outside attorney for a consultation or second opinion.
