Nick Cannon is human after all. Former America’s Got Talent host told his listeners Tuesday that he was hospitalized with pneumonia last week after a long day of performing at Madison Square Garden in New York City
“I didn’t realize it was pneumonia,” he explained during an appearance on the Breakfast Club radio show. “My family kept me going but I hit the hallway floor.”
When Nick Cannon was hospitalized for pneumonia, his family was worried about him.
On Thursday, the 37-year-old comedian‘s wife Mariah Carey, and their twins, Monroe and Moroccan, visited him at a Los Angeles area hospital.
Nick Cannon Suffers From Pneumonia
“He hit the hallway floor,” Carey told People of her husband’s scary experience. “I don’t know how much longer he would have lasted if we hadn’t been there.” The singer added that when she saw Nick in the hospital bed with an IV drip attached to his arm and monitors by his head, all she could think about is how quickly he had deteriorated since they’d last seen each other on Tuesday night before his health took a turn for the worse overnight into Wednesday morning.
Nick Cannon thanked fans for their concern with a video message posted to Instagram on Thursday afternoon after spending two nights in intensive care receiving treatment for what doctors believe may have been bacterial pneumonia caused by streptococcus bacteria which can be spread through coughing or sneezing from person to person or contact with contaminated surfaces like door handles or air vents.
You are human. You’re not Superman. And if you want to keep your body healthy and in good shape, it’s important to take care of yourself.
The best way to do this is by getting regular checkups and making sure that you eat well and exercise regularly. This doesn’t mean that you need to be perfect—just try not to make unhealthy lifestyle choices or habits too often or for too long at a time. This can cause serious problems like pneumonia, which was what happened with Nick Cannon after his Madison Square Garden show (and subsequent hospitalization).
