Photo Stream SHRANK!

I have an iPhone 4S running IOS 7.1.2. I backup to the cloud and have plenty of space available. I have enabled My Photo Stream. Until last week, my photo stream was displaying 1,000 photos as expected. My Camera Roll had gotten large, so I deleted a lot of photos, leaving less than 50. Why not, as they were mostly all included in the photo stream! At some point in time, I decided to search for an older picture, turning to the photo stream. What I noticed surprised me. My photo stream now has only 136 pictures in it!

I have backed all my photos to my iMac, so they are not lost. But, why did my Photo Stream shrink down from 1,000 photos to 136?

As an added piece of info, my iPad2 still shows 1,000 photos in My Photo Stream.

Any ideas why this happened and how to get my photo stream on my iPhone to revert to normal?
