Found a solution!!

With the help of http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1766 and http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4946


Confirmed this evening's backup file existed on my Mac and that the option to restore from previous backup would be an option. I had not disconnected my iPhone from my Mac so while still in iTunes, chose RESTORE. A little uneasy to watch the process of restoring first to factory settings (deleting all my info...) yet at the end of that process, was given the option to chose Restore from Most Recent BackUp.  WooHoo! My deleted email/calendar account is back in place as is ALL my calendar entries, contacts, apps, etc. 

Now to find a way to transfer my calendar entries to a different account...
