Nick Cannon continues to improve after being hospitalized for what wife Mariah Carey called a “mild kidney failure.”

“As always, he’s in good spirits considering the situation,” Mariah, who posted a pic of herself with Nick in his Aspen hospital bed on Wednesday, told People.

“The situation is not easy,” she explained. “[He is] in a lot of pain… we are hopeful that he’ll be 100 percent as soon as possible.”

Adding, “We really appreciate everybody’s love and support.”

On Wednesday, Nick told his fans on Twitter that he was headed back to Los Angeles for treatment.

“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,” he wrote.
