I received a call from the Grand River Cancer Centre on Friday. I am booked for a consultation with Dr Hentschel who is a Respirologist and a Nurse Sandy. (519-749-4370 x2344)   Respirologist? What the heck is that? I was confused talking to Erin the nurse on the phone because it is a Lung Diagnostic Assessment Centre. She explained because it has to do with the chest area that a Respirologist is the first specialist who I will be involved with. I have an appointment on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. The doctor will review the bloodwork, ultrasound and ct scan and examine me and make a decision how to proceed and what tests will be needed next. I feel strangely calm almost now knowing that I have an appointment, and that we are moving closer to figuring out a diagnosis. Then we can get rolling towards a plan. I need a plan. I am a task oriented , get things done kind of girl so the sooner we have a plan then I will have something to focus on.
