The wife is trying to make light of the situation but she emphasized that a mild kidney failure is still a serious condition.
Mariah Carey's husband is hospitalized in Aspen for mild kidney failure. The singer revealed the news via Twitter by posting a photo of her nursing Nick Cannon on hospital bed. "Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman," she tweeted in companion of the photo.
Carey later gave out more details about Cannon's health in a blog post. "This is us in the hospital - role reversal," she began. "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."
She continued, "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."
The singer did not reveal how long her husband would be in the hospital, neither did she update about his health progress.
