Default Total Cost of Surgery With Dr. Waner - Lymphatic Malformation

Hi - I am new to this site and just trying to find my way around. Not even sure if I'm posting in the right place. We just had a surgical consult with Dr. Waner for our 2 1/2 year-old daughter, Jacqui. She has a large LM on the right side of her face and neck. Dr. Waner told us that the surgery would be 8-10 hours long and that she would likely spend one night in Ped's ICU, and 4-5 days total in the hospital. Does anyone have a rough idea of the total cost of a surgery like this, including the hospital portion? We are also curious about how the hospital apartments work. If Dr. Waner wants us to stay in NY for a period of time after being discharged from the hospital before clearing her for travel, can you still stay in the apartments, or would we need to stay elsewhere after her discharge? I would be grateful for any info anyone would be willing to share. Thanks.
