When does an edit turn into a rewrite?

I'm in a quandary. I've been editing a novel I write a couple of years ago. The process started out as a minor tweak. Then I took out an entire sub plot (about 25,000 words) and this was an improvement. Then I tested out a point of view shift. Then a slightly different language style. Then some plot changes. Is this still the same book, I wonder?
