Nick Cannon kidney failure

Posted on

Nick Cannon is in an Aspen, Colo., hospital after suffering “mild kidney failure,” according to a Tweet and Web message from Mariah Carey. The singer posted a photo of the couple, with Carey snuggling on the hospital bed with her ailing husband.

“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.”
