Nick Cannon suffered “mild” kidney failure while vacationing with his wife Mariah Carey in Aspen, Colo, and
Mariah tweeted her followers just after 3 a.m. on Jan. 4 asking for prayers on her husband’s behalf.
At her website, MariahCarey.com, the songstress let fans in on what’s going on with Nick’s condition, sounding as if she’s trying to stay upbeat in what has to be a scary situation for her:
“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.”
