    I carefully removed most of the brown, dry leaves, from the pads so I can monitor the healthy leaves.

    The tree seems to be bouncing back, at least from what I can tell.

    Still need to clean the remaining leaves from the soil when I get home to avoid bugs making it their home.

    Here's a pic I took this morning, after the trim.

    Well done and welcome to the hobby. The first stage is always keeping your tree alive (light and water being the key things as you've discovered) and beyond that there will be other aspects to get into. CE are outdoors trees as Geoff has said and it's a shame they're mis-sold as indoor trees. Possibly the guy at the shop didn't know better himself.
