You could yank the redirect and replace it with a rewrite. OR you could revert the pages to their original names, and insert a line* in your htaccess telling the server to parse .htm as .php.
And then hope google decides it was just a momentary glitch and puts everything back the way it was. How much time are we talking about?
* Don't look at me. But there was a post on this subject-- including exact wording-- within the last day or two, so someone will know.

The googlebot works slowly, they should come back if the only change was the URL and it was 301 redirected from the old to the new.

When you change around the names and extensions of files as used inside the server, there is rarely a need to change the URLs that are used out on the web to access that content.
The server configuration has many ways to achieve this. There was never any need to start messing around with redirects.

Are you using a mySQL database or a flat file database?Which pages are currently being indexed?

All pages that are not php are fine. Thanks for the feedback. I contacted my host and will read more about using the htaccess file.
