This morning Mariah Carey took to twitter, posting the above photo, to announce husband, Nick Cannon, had been rushed to the hospital for a kidney failure. The couple, vacationing in Aspen, had a sudden change of plans when the “America’s Got Talent” host became ill. Although, Mariah says the systems are mild she asks that we keep Nick in our prayers.
She then followed up with, “Please keep Nick in your thoughts – here is a message from MC about the situation. http://mariahcarey.com/news/message-mariah-hospital-nick“ linking to her official website.
The message reads as follows,
This is us in the hospital – role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are.
We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.
We’re doing OK but we’re “straaaaaanded in Aspen”. #DramaticDivaPlace (I know, we could be in a lot worse places) but the truth is as long as we’re together, we’re OK. I’m not trying to make light out of the situation because it’s a serious moment that’s very tough on all of us so please keep us and our family in your prayers. LYM.
Kidney failure can be a very serious medical condition and we’re happy Nick’s condition is only mild. Hopefully he’ll make a speedy and full recovery.
