EL PASO, Texas -- Sick children in Ft. Bliss housing: that's what one soldier's wife claims and now she says her child will never be the same because of the home they lived in on post.

In September, 2006, the Wesley family moved into their home in the Van Horne neighborhood at Ft. Bliss. For the next two years, 3-year-old Calina went from perfectly healthy to a hospital regular.

"She has up to 120 seizures a day. Now mind you they last between three to five seconds and we don't always see them, but some of them last longer," said Calina's mother, Melissa Wesley.
