You're asking at the wrong time.

The proper time to address this was before the order. When a party seeks attorneys fees from you, your attorney (you did use one, I assume, as it is always a mistake to be pro se in a contested case) can respond to the request. Typically that is done by letter briefs to the judge or brief oral argument. If your attorney saw an amount that looked questionable, that was the time to raise the issue.

There are no do-overs in law because you missed a step on your side of the case. At this point you get to do exactly what the order says when it says and there are no ifs to that.
