Nick Cannon transferred to L.A. hospital

America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon, who was hospitalized yesterday for “mild kidney failure” while vacationing in Aspen, Colorado, has been transferred to a hospital in Los Angeles. He thanked fans, tweeting: “Currently being transfered to a hospital in LA. Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me … I will be a’ight.” Nick, his wife Mariah Carey and their eight-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe were transferred via private jet. A source told Us Weekly: “Nick looked pretty frail and weak, but Mariah was helping him.” Mariah told People that Nick’s condition is stable but said he is “in a lot of pain,” adding: “As always, he’s in good spirits considering the situation. We are hopeful that he’ll be 100 percent as soon as possible. We really appreciate everybody’s love and support.”

    I bet it’s just Kidney Stones, but I know they can be painful. In any event, I wish him a speedy recovery.

    mild failure? isn’t failure absolute? Is it more like he had kidney pains or partial blockage or something like that? Not FAILURE..Failure means they stopped period. Ok did they just start back up again? I don’t get it but that’s why I’m not a doctor I guess.

    Maybe they can surgically put in a few ounces of talent in that guy.

    Failure does not mean they have stopped altogether. A person can suffer a percentage of kidney loss but it is considered early renal failure. But you are right when you say ‘absolute’ – you do not regenerate new kidney tissue and eventually it will lead to total failure a few years down the road.
