Leave it be.  If not dead it will start shooting in a couple of weeks or so.  I grow a variegated type and it is shooting now from an apparently ."dead" state.  

If it shoots you should cut it back to those points.

Remove begonias from compost/pots and wash them thoroughly.  Set the contaminated soil on a tray and allow birds to get them.  Keep this soil off your garden soil. Use fresh compost for your begonias.

what are you excited about?

Nice shrub Yviestevie...Garrya.  Yes, I think your neighbour will notice a yard removed from his/ her property. And you will need to,provide plenty of your own garden
