In what she's calling a reversal of roles since she was hospitalized for her now epic pregnancy with "Dem Babies" last year, Mariah Carey tweeted the news that her husband Nick Cannon is suffering from "mild kidney failure," asking for prayers as he recovers in an Aspen, Colorado hospital.

In a message on her official website, the singer wrote:

This is us in the hospital - role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are.

We're trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful. They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.

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. LYM.

The couple was recently spotted celebrating the holidays in Aspen, wearing matching outfits and toting their twins Monroe and Moroccan.
