I too went through what they thought was pneumonia, but turned out to be lung disease. Try calling the hospital and asking to be put on their charity program. I had racked up over 75k worth of bills, and they waived a whole bunch of them. It doesn't hurt to ask, anyway. Hope your dh is feeling better, and so sorry you're going through this.
It is so wrong the way uninsured people are gouged.
Look on the hospital website to see what options you have. Depending on income some hospitals will write some off. They make talk tough but in the end they want what they can get so they may make adjustments for you. Either way, find out about setting up a payment plan--over many years if you have to/something that won't strap you finanacially each month. We've paid as little as $25 a month.
