Confluence Upgrade - 3.5.13 to 4.3.7 - Broken Calendars

We recently upgraded confluence from 3.5.13 (wiki-markup) to 4.3.7 (xml).

In the process, it appears that we've broken the calendar macro.

I researched, and it looks like the calendar macro no longer exists on 4.3.7, so during the upgrade, it slapped the calendar macro in a wiki-markup box and left it at that. 

So when we go to the page containing the calendar, we can see a calendar, but everything is frozen.  No matter what you click on, nothing works.

I've seen other documentation indicating that you should download the calendar to an .ics file which will then be used to create a new Team Calendar in the upgrade version (4.3.7).  However, since our screen is frozen, and we're doing this after-the-fact, that doesn't appear to be an option anymore.

My thought is that we're stuck, and will have to rebuild those lost calendars from scratch in the new version unless someone much smarter than I knows a trick to get around this.  Any suggestions?

Reviewed a little further, and it looks like since noone thought about downloading their calendar to an .ics file until after we did the upgrade, we're out of luck.
