Re: [IP] Selling medical equipment



I am trying to upgrade our Htrons and I am currently waiting on the
paperwork telling me why I am "required" to turn in both my Htrons, which
leaves us with no backup pump!  I have been waiting for at least 3 weeks
now.  HMMMM!
I am not giving mine back without a fight!
