Honey Nut Chex

It was a normal May day nearly 6 years ago.  I had been on bedrest for a month because I had preeclampsia.  I was having a non-stress test weekly and visiting with perinatology as well as my doctor weekly. Oh, and peeing in a giant orange jug for 24 hours every week.  One of those days, my luck ran out and I was sent to the hospital to find out that I had developed HELLP syndrome and they were inducing me then.  My husband wasn't there, I didn't have my bags packed, this couldn't actually be happening.  But, it was, and I had made it to almost 37 weeks so there was relief that everything should be ok.  Fast forward 29 hours of laboring and almost 3 hours of pushing and my sweet *little* girl was born and sent to the NICU.  I was starving, and nothing sounded good at all.  I ended up eating 2 bowls of Honey Nut Chex and that was perfect.  About an hour later I got really sick (turns out I had rotavirus) and one of the only things I wanted to eat while I was in the hospital was Honey Nut Chex.  I don't eat it now very often, but every time I do, I'm right back in the hospital in my mind, having just given birth. 
And don't worry, with my next births I got it right.  My bags were packed in advance and I always take a box of Honey Nut Chex with me to eat right after delivery.
