Nick Cannon was rushed to the hospital in Aspen for mild kidney failure. His wife Mariah Carey and his twins had been celebrating the New Year when he became sick.  Mariah reached out to fans to give an update on Nick’s health.

Mariah Carey wrote,”This is us in the hospital—role reversal,” she said. “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.” You can view photos of her in the hospital here.

Mariah Carey an Aries girl, tried to make light of the situation but is probably worried about Nick’s condition. She said, “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.”

Born under the sign of Libra, Nick Cannon has had a bumpy ride over the last two years. Becoming a new father, Mariah had to deal with her own health issues but fortunately gave birth to beautiful twins. Chronic kidney disease is a growing health problem in the US.
