“This is us in the hospital — role reversal; Last year it was me attached to the machines (after having dembabies) and Nick was there with me through it, and now here we are,” she wrote on Wednesday, including a photo of herself visiting him in the hospital. “We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful.”

According to, Acute Kidney Failure can be caused by several things, including diabetes, high blood pressure, an enlarged prostate gland, an injury, or a serious infection.
