Fully drain the emulsified oil, then new filter/refill with oil and half a can of seafoam. Run motor for a few minutes to let everything circulate, then drain fully and new filter/refill with oil. Make your first oil change after 800 miles or so, and pray the emulsified oil didn't destroy your bearings.

You can get the old oil tested by Blackstone Labs; they'll tell you if there was any bearing particles left in the oil.
