LVM - possible data loss

I'm running RH 2.4 kernel. LVM 1.0.3

volume group: /dev/ramairVG
logical volume: /dev/ramairVG/lvhome
physical volume: /dev/md1
/dev/md1 is raid1 of 2 IDE 250GB drives.
/home is used as a samba share for a couple of WinXP.

My /home fs is at 89% so I wanted to extend it. I have about 150GB of unallocated space in the VG.

I tried to unmount /home but I got device busy. I issued umount -l /home and it was unmounted.

lvextend -L50G /dev/ramairVG/lvhome ** I forgot the +50G
resize2fs /dev/ramairVG/lvhome - FAILED
Said to run e2fsck -f /dev/ramairVG/lvhome - WARNINGS!

Here's some of my console:
[root@RAMAIR home]# umount /home
umount: /home: device is busy
[root@RAMAIR home]# umount -l /home
[root@RAMAIR home]# e2fsck -f /dev/ramairVG/lvhome
e2fsck 1.32 (09-Nov-2002)
Group descriptors look bad... trying backup blocks...
Block bitmap for group 128 is not in group.  (block 2553887680)
Relocate<y>? yes
Inode bitmap for group 128 is not in group.  (block 33554432)
Relocate<y>? yes
Inode table for group 128 is not in group.  (block 2329411584)
Relocate<y>? no
I ctrl-C out an this message cancels up to "group 255"

Help! I'm scared.
