Aftermath of Website Source Crash

Our website began having problems which persisted the entire week. Pages opened very slowly if at all, impossible to access our Wordpress blog admin functions to edit or add new content--kept getting timeout errors and/or unable to open errors. I found out today that the source was our web hoster Website Source, who admitted having issues all week. As of this morning, they posted on their update site that all issues were resolved. Sure enough, our site works much better, EXCEPT for our Wordpress blog which still will not access our admin tools. I highly suspect the source is with Website Source and not Wordpress since the issues began exactly when WS went down---otherwise that would be a remarkable coincidence. I really need to find a fix. If you have one, please advise in "help for dummies" step-by-step instructions, as I am not very astute in technical terms or computer technology. WS attempted to help me, but their instructions might have well been written in Sanskrit. Thanks
