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 [on] de bed with Mr. C."

Mariah continued, "...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."

Mariah later told People magazine that Cannon is stable but in a lot of pain. She said, "We are hopeful that he'll be 100 percent as soon as possible."

Cannon tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he was being transferred to a hospital in Los Angeles. He continued, "Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me...I will be a'ight."

The showbiz legend was forced to cancel a sold-out benefit show in Sydney, Australia on Friday when he fell ill and was taken to a hospital.  The 85-year-old actor and longtime advocate for muscular dystrophy research had a problem getting out of his vehicle at the event and medical attention was required.

Stephen Cesarano, sales manager of the Aussie venue, Doltone House, told ABC News affiliate KABC-TV in Los Angeles, "Unfortunately, a combination of a very long trip from Las Vegas, as well as a very busy schedule, and of course when Jerry lands he goes at it 110 percent, led to him feeling very exhausted."

Cesarano claimed it was just the third show in 80 years that Lewis has canceled.  Many audience members refused refunds and instead chose to donate the funds to the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation of Australia.
