WEDNESDAY, Jan. 4, 2012— Nick Cannon had a hiccup to his holiday plans with his wife, Mariah Carey, and their 8-month-old twins. While vacationing in Aspen, Colo., theAmerica’s Got Talenthost was hospitalized and, by the looks of the picture Carey posted on Twitter, the couple may be in store for an extended stay in the mountains.
“Please pray for Nick as he's fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure #mybraveman,” she wrote on Wednesday on Twitter.
Mild kidney failure could be a result of certain illnesses like upper respiratory tract infection, regular prescriptions, or dehydration, according Bryan Becker, MD, the immediate past president of the National Kidney Foundation, who is not treating Cannon. “It would potentially mean that he is still making urine and doesn’t need other types of treatments such as dialysis, but that the condition needs to be watched so it’s not getting any worse,” Becker notes.
Cannon may have experienced some muscle achiness or change in sleep patterns, or nothing at all. “In Colorado when people are active, you can have muscle damage that makes the kidney function might go a little bit awry,” Becker explains. Dehydration, which is especially common in higher altitudes, could have also played a role.
Until Cannon’s kidney function gets back to normal, he at least has his wife of three years by his side. “The truth is as long as we're together, we're OK,” she wrote on her .
