“Please pray for Nick as he’s fighting to recover from a mild kidney failure. #mybraveman,” she tweeted.

Mariah went on to write that they’re making the best of the situation, though didn’t reveal how long the 31-year-old was expected to remain in the hospital or what type of condition or progress he was making.

And while she did her best to make light of the situation, she did note that it was a serious matter.

“We’re 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. I’m 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.”
