Mariah Carey Tweets Pic Of Hospitalized Husband Nick Cannon

This certainly is not one sweet day for Mariah Carey’s husband Nick Cannon. He and his festive wife apparently had their holiday break in Aspen cut short when Cannon wound up in the hospital — but it wasn’t a skiing accident that sidelined the America’s Got Talent host. “Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” Mariah tweeted this morning along with this pic of Nick in a hospital bed. Carey elaborated a bit more on her official website. “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,” she wrote.

Here’s the rest of Mariah’s post:

“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.”

Ouch! Not the best way to kick off the new year. Get well soon, Nick!
