March a Crazy Month

I’m finally getting around posting my March Reads or should I say March Read, I only read one book. I was really looking forward to joining Katrina’s Spring Reading Thing; I just didn’t have time to pick out books that I wanted to read for the challenge, now I have to wait until the Fall Challenge.

March was a crazy month for my family. My grandma fell down her stairs and broke her pelvis. After spending a week in the hospital she is now in Assisted Living for about three months until her pelvis heals and then she’ll be able to go home. The sad thing is she also suffers from Alzheimer’s and can’t remember her fall or why she’s there, she constantly asks to go home. My nephew was involved in a rollover accident and was ejected from the car. He fractured his neck, broke his collarbone and numerous ribs and his left side of his face was unrecognizable. Last week he had surgery on his neck and is recovering. And then… my dad found out he has two large blood clots on his lungs (pulmonary embolism). His oxygen level has been low for quite some time, in January he had x-rays taken and two spots were found, the doctor suspected it was just scar tissue from pneumonia. His oxygen level was still low in March; they did an MRI and discovered that the previous spots were actually blood clots. The doctors are now working on dissolving the blood clots and he will be on oxygen for a few months. I told you it was crazy!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
(Kindle Edition)
Little Women is the heartwarming story of the March family that has thrilled generations of readers. It is the story of four sisters--Jo, Meg, Amy and Beth-- and of the courage, humor and ingenuity they display to survive poverty and the absence of their father during the Civil War.

This classic novel of home, family and love, inspired by the author's own life, will linger in your heart long after you have turned the last page.  The novel chronicles the life of the four March sisters, Meg, Jo, Beth and Amy, during the time of the civil war.  Each girl has her own unique characteristics and traits which the author does a brilliant job bringing each of them to life.  It tells of their poverty and how they shouldn't take anything for granted.  I recommend this book to any women, whether they are young or old and I hope they like it as much as I did.
