I admit that I have never really understood Lightroom. I believe that I somehow had a catalog within a catalog. When I opened the top catalog, Lightroom forced me to open it as a new catalog2. The catalog within was named catalog2 and must have been overwritten, because I cannot access the photos in the original catalog2. Is there any way to access the photos without a catalog (probably a stupid question). Unfortunately, I had no backup catalog.
