America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon is in the hospital suffering from “mild kidney failure,” his wife Mariah Carey posted on her blog Wednesday. Carey did not go into details about Cannon’s medical status or speculate on when he might be released from the hospital. She did, however, ask fans and supporters for their prayers during this difficult time for her family.

Mariah Carey posted a photo to her blog and Twitter feed showing herself curled up with husband Nick Cannon in a hospital bed. “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 we are here,” Carey said in an attached note.

“Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” Carey posted on her Twitter feed.

Mariah Carey, who gave birth to twins Moroccan and Monroe last year, said she and husband Cannon are “trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful.”

In her blog post, Carey said she and her husband are “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.” Carey added that doctors “tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.”

Despite her light tone, Carey said she is “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.”
