Nick Cannon Hospitalized for 'Mild Kidney Failure'

Not a fun way to kick off the New Year.

Nick Cannon has been hospitalized in Aspen after suffering from a mild kidney failure. But even that’s not keeping him off of Twitter. Mariah Carey asked fans to keep her husband in their thoughts and prayers this morning, Tweeting:

“Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman.” She then attached a pic of him in his hospital bed.

Okay, so it was more like he was forced to be on Twitter.

Mariah then wrote a longer, more serious post on her personal blog.

“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.”

The singer continued:

“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.”

Mariah then joked about how tough it must be to be stranded in Aspen.

“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.”

Mariah didn’t reveal how long Cannon was expected to be in the hospital, or what type of condition or progress he was making.

Either way, we hope you get well soon, Nick. And Mariah, maybe don’t force your hospitalized husband to pose for Twitpics with you. Just for a little while, maybe?
