Nick Cannon is on the path to recovery.

Access Hollywood reported the America’s Got Talent host’s exact condition is unknown, but wife Mariah Carey tweeted about her hubby’s progress on Friday after his surgery.

"Nick is in stable condition with a good prognosis, hopefully he'll be discharged within 2 days," she wrote.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the “Shake It Up” singer did not give any details about the surgery, but doctors said Cannon’s acute kidney failure was possibly brought about by dehydration, diabetes, infection, trauma and kidney stones.

Chief of nephrology at UC Irvine Medical Center and kidney disorders specialist, Dr. Madeleine Pahl, told the newspaper that it is common for patients suffering from acute kidney failure, which she calls a “silent” disease, to not know about their condition until they end up in the hospital.

She also said kidney problems can result in the kidneys’ inability to get rid of toxins in the body.

Cannon was in Aspen, Colorado on vacation when he was hospitalized earlier this week. He was then taken to hospital in Los Angeles Wednesday where he underwent surgery.

Carey has been updating fans on Cannon’s progress via Twitter, posting a photo of her kissing a happy looking Cannon in his hospital room, which is filled with flowers and balloons.

Get better soon Nick.
