Carlton Family Health History!
1964 We moved to Canoga Park in 1964 on Nita Avenue. In 1967 my Dad
bought a 2nd home on the Santa Susana Pass Road. Actually the house
was on the corner of Santa Susana Pass Road and Box Canyon Road. Our
house was on a WELL!
While we lived at that house, my Father was constantly sick. We moved
from this house about 1971. Around 1973 my Father was diagnosed with
Cancer of the Larynx. Later he was diagnosed with Lymphoma. He
suffered greatly! He was a 30 year Retired Disabled American Veteran
of the USMC. My Mother began to exibit changes in personality. Later
she was diagnosed with a Thyroid insufficiency. My 2 older brothers
recently died, the unusual thing about their deaths, they died 3
months apart from each. Timing! One died after sustaining multiple
cardiovascular events and surgeries, Feb 06, he was 59 yrs young. The
other brother died from Melanoma in the Brain, Lungs and Liver, Nov
05, he was 56 years young. My sister has suffered from her early 20's
with facial pain. I have read many documents on the internet on TCE
exposure, and Facial Pain or Trigeminal Nerve Pain. She was told she
had TMJ? She suffers with degenerative arthritis and chronic pain
issues. I too, have my list of health issues. Out of our original 6
in our family, only myself and my sister are living today!
My oldest brother's son, is now 49, last year he was diagnosed with a
tumor on the adrenal gland! This nephew was a baby when we lived on
Nita Avenue and he lived with us. Since he was the first Grandchild
of my parents, he was also babysat by them quite often, meaning he
spent plenty of time at the house on the Santa Susana Pass Road.
My three children also had minor but real birth defects.
My oldest was born in 1973, she had a turned in foot. Orthopedic
shoes were ordered.
My second was born in 1975, when the doctor cut the umbilical cord he
made a note that there were 3 arteries in the cord instead of the
normal 2! (thank god that was all it was)
My third child was born in 1981, his one foot was almost clubbed, but
not quite, an orthopedic doctor put his foot in a plaster caste for a
couple of months. This did correct it.
When I asked my Doctors what would cause something like this, they
told me it was a result of my uterus shape? I'm 5'9" tall? I am not
a small person!
