For those of you wondering how much this 2-day stay costs in a local hospital for a person without insurance, here is the summary. I got lucky, though, in that (1) I did not have major surgery done and (2) I was able to apply for financial assistance. This financial assistance helped me with my bill. For thos going to the hospital, and do not have health insurance, I urge you to apply for financial assistance at the hospital. You never know what you may get.
