Nick spoke of his time on the “operating table” via Twitter and then added, “recovering … about to be stronger than ever,” on Saturday.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Nick’s doctors believed the sudden failure could be from ΓÇ£dehydration, diabetes, infection, trauma, and/or kidney stones.ΓÇ¥ Dr.Madeleine Pahl at UC Irvine Medical Center says these problems could prevent NickΓÇÖs organs from properly digesting toxins from his body.
Overall, the cause of this New YearΓÇÖs disaster is still unclear. The DivaGals send our warmest wishes for his speedy recovery.
