Sorry to hear bout that. 2" is pretty big, so you get the snake to the vet soon. I wouldn't worry about the undigested hair as that happens sometimes. I would recommend saving the parasite by putting it in a jar of alcohol. Save the rest for a fecal exam (maybe freeze it in a zip lock bag?
You want to give the doc as much as you can so he can properly diagnose.

Let us know how it turns out. They are pretty hardy snakes, so I would not stress.
