Nick Cannon thanks fans for ‘prayers and concern’ while recovering from mild kidney failure

Nick Cannon, who was recently hospitalized for what has been described as “mild kidney failure,” is apparently feeling well enough to tweet a thank-you message to his fans.

“Currently being transfered to a hospital in LA,” he wrote to his 3 million-plus Twitter followers this afternoon. “Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me... I will be a’ight.”

Mariah Carey tells People magazine that her husband, who had been recovering in an Aspen, Colo., hospital, is stable but “in a lot of pain.”

“We are hopeful that he’ll be 100 percent as soon as possible,” she said.

Carey has not said what brought on Cannon’s health issues, which have led to the term “mild kidney failure” becoming a trending Google search term for much of the day. E! Online reports that Cannon recently suffered from the flu, which may have brought on the kidney trouble.

Here’s hoping Cannon gets better and turns the term “recovered from mild kidney failure” into the new search term of the moment.
