Firstly I LOVE their names! Mine is called Bucky, because he was missing an arm (now grown back)
Post some pics when you can so we can see how they're looking.
Keep them in a separate tub while you cycle your tank again, in that tub you will probably have to change the water every day so the ammonia, etc, doesn't build up. Cycle your tank like normal. Hopefully the filter and decorations still have beneficial bacteria on them which will move it along quickly.
Keep the water the axolotls are in nice and cold, and clean. This should be all you need for them to heal. Are they eating normally?
