Doting wife Mariah Carey is standing by her man. After her hubby Nick Cannon was hospitalized with what she termed “mild kidney failure,” she’s acting as full time nurse! While a full recovery is expected (whew) she tells People that he’s “in a lot of pain.”

“As always, he’s in good spirits considering the situation,” she said, “[but] the situation is not easy.”

Nick must be on the mend somewhat, because he tweeted that he’s being transferred to a hospital in L.A., saying “I will be a’ight.”

“We are hopeful that he’ll be 100 percent as soon as possible,” Mariah added. “We really appreciate everybody’s love and support.”
