Welcome to the forums! Wow, what a job. You can take a pair of end snips, or end nail pullers, grasp the two staple legs and push them back through the tongue. Then pull the staple all the way out. You may have less tongue damage that way. Any broken or splintered tongues, you will need to smooth them out or cut them off.
