Please help me ID and what to do next

This is the pot of cacti I acquired from a neighbor.
I noticed them in her side yard for a year or so
now. They were yellowish brown and wrinkled or
shriveled. She gave them to me, I was about to
toss them out to use the pot. But then I thought
I should water them first to see what would happen.
I had them since Mon. 8/13. You wouldn't believe
the change! It even has buds now and flowered this
a.m. white and pink. Of course very pretty. I think
they may be echinopsis?
What do I do next? I have them away from other plants
just in case they may have 'something'. I believe the
damaged parts are (hopefully) from being dried out for
so long, or partial dead? Do I remove it?
