"Thank you for all your love, prayers and concern," he added. "You know me. I will be a'ight."

A witness tells Us Weekly that Cannon, Carey and their 8-month-old twins Moroccan and Monroe were transported via private jet, adding, "Nick looked pretty frail and weak, but Mariah was helping him."

She added that doctors tried -- and failed -- to remove her hubby's room. "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," she wrote. "So please keep us and our family in your prayers."
