You are overthinking it. Count the number of days you were physically present in the USA. Half day is a day.

A partial day is counted the same as a full day outside the US.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
