Nice azalea(s)! It looks to be the Southern indica 'Formosa'. Please clean and seal your cuts and put a layer of moss or mulch over the base and soil surface until you have plenty of new growth. Plenty of sun is fine but you need to keep the roots shaded and cool. Also, you can wash all of the old heavy soil from the roots and change to good bonsai soil. They are very strong azaleas and won't mind.

Good luck!
