Nick Cannon just headed to the hospital for complications from lupus, and we really hope he feels better soon

Lupus can be a scary disease to have. Unfortunately, Nick Cannon has been hospitalized for lupus complications, which means that his Christmas will be a bit less cheerful this year — memorable, but not cheerful.

Cannon was diagnosed with lupus five years ago after suffering through a few issues with his kidneys. Since, he’s been trying his hardest to manage the disease. Those with lupus have to handle their immune systems wrongfully attacking healthy cells, thus many parts of their body can be horribly affected. Symptoms often flare up at random, and while there’s no cure, there are treatment plans to lessen the impact.

Cannon announced his hospitalization last night through Instagram.

The caption reads:

For all who have been trying to contact me the last few days this is where I've been. And I will be in the Hospital through Christmas. All good though, Doctors say I will be back to normal before the New Year. #LupusSucks #ncredible #warrior

Without a doubt, he’s definitely a warrior.

We’re so bummed out that this America’s Got Talent host will be missing out on Christmas at home, but we definitely hope his family stops by to visit. The fact that his doctors think that he’ll be back to feeling like himself for the start of 2017 is definitely a good sign.

We wish Nick Cannon the best!
