Nick Cannon is back to work after being hospitalized for mild kidney failure and now for the first time he reveals that he thought he was “going to die” when had to visit the ER twice!
While on a family vacay in Aspen during the holidays, Mr. Cannon Carey was hospitalized and treated for kidney problems.
Cannon revealed that it all began when Mariah and their twins got sick and so he acted like he was Superman, trying to take care of everyone. Nick explained, “My kids caught a cold and I was looking after them and my wife wasn’t feeling well… She caught a little cold and I was trying to be Superman and I hadn’t slept for maybe four days ‘cos I was taking care of the kids and my son had like an ear infection…”
But then he felt sick himself and instead of laying around and resting, Nick took himself to the gym and took some cold meds, hoping to shake off his illness. And being the probably stubborn man (like most are when it comes to illnesses) he is, he refused to see a doctor.
He went on to say that, “Two days before New Year’s (Eve) I started feeling this horrible pain in my back, I starting thinking maybe when I was boxing I got hit… My wife, who was my angel throughout this entire thing… She was like, ‘You gotta go to a doctor’ and I’m like ‘No’.”
But after finding Nick curled up on the floor in pain, Mariah called in a medic. “I thought I was good. The scariest part was when they said ‘You can go home while we get these other tests back’… They sent me home… I got to my house and that’s when I thought I was going to die… The pain came back twice as much and other stuff wasn’t working and I had to go back to the hospital.”
But now he says he’s fully recovered. Cannon added, “I’m good. I’ve got to go back to the doctor a couple more times, but I’m fine – I’m totally recovered.”
