Upgrading to the AutoSet!
My Doc just called and told me he put the change order in to the DME for the S9 AutoSet. He told me to call him back if they give me any trouble!! From what it sounds like after reading many other posts on here, I got REAL lucky with this doctor!

It's going to be nice to have the flexibility of the S9 AutoSet down the road; I continue to have nothing but thanks and appreciation for this Board and to the kind folks who took the time to help with my questions with their suggestions and comments!!

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures....

Thank you. Finally picked it up from the reluctant DME today. The doc was great; wrote the script exactly how I asked him.

Of course, however, the DME rep tried to give me the third degree and wanted to know if I called the dr to upgrade again. My reply to her was that what my doc and I talked about was none of her business (Hippa) and that if she wasn't go to fill the RX, I would just go to another DME!

Anyway, so happy to have it with all of its versatility. What a pleasure it was to upgrade my profile to AutoSet!!

P.S. Anyone reading this that has not picked up their machine yet, do your homework and DON'T get stuck with a brick like I originally did with the Escape!

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures....
