In the above diagram, quadrilateral \(ABDE\) has two right angles \(\angle B\) and \(\angle D,\) and \(C\) is a point on \(\overline{BD}.\) The lengths of some of the line segments are \[\begin{array}&\lvert\overline{AB}\rvert=m, &\lvert\overline{BC}\rvert=n, &\lvert\overline{CA}\rvert=5, &\lvert\overline{AE}\rvert=13, &\lvert\overline{EC}\rvert=mn, \end{array}\] where \(m\) and \(n\) are integers such that \(m<n.\) Then what is \[\lvert\overline{CD}\rvert+\lvert\overline{DE}\rvert?\]
