You have coolant in the oil, you have a blown head gasket, or cracked head.

I meant no coolant in oil or cracked gaskets

OK, did you guys do this work yourselves? A friend maybe? 2 things that I can think of... #1 did you burp the air out of the cooling system once you started the vehicle back up? This is done by leaving the radiator cap off until warm-up this allows the air to bleed out. #2, cracked head or blown head gasket, do a compression test on all the cylinders. All should check min.120 lbs./sq.in. to 160 lbs. with no more than 20 lbs. difference between any two.

We took it to a shop for the over heating problem and was told we needed a new radiator then thermostat then water pump. One of my co workers took a look and said my fan wasn't on. He rigged some wires and it came on but then blew a fuse.

Ya, it definitely helps cooling when the fan is working...
