Pink Hospitalized and Other Celebs with Health Problems in 2012

Yahoo Contributor Network

Pink meant to spend the weekend celebrating her daughter's first birthday. Instead, she spent it in a hospital bed.

"Maybe it's cause my mom was an ER nurse all my life- but throw me in a gown and a hook me up to an IV- and I'm a happy girl. Stomach flu sucks but morphine doesn't," Pink tweeted from her hospital bed on Saturday. The singer went into the hospital for stomach pains and assumed it was because of the flu or ulcers, but it turned out that her gall bladder was the real issue.

So, she and husband Carey Hart couldn't have Willow's party at home, so they brought it to the hospital.

"Thanks family 4 bringing my lil girls party to the hospital all weekend for me. I spose it doesn't matter where u r when u eat ur 1st cake!" she tweeted, adding that little Willow made out like a bandit. "Willow just got a Gucci dress and a custom rocking chair for her birthday, plus some Toms, so it ain't all bad. lucky little girl."

"Oh and p.s..... F YOU gall bladder! SAYONARA!!!!!!!!!!!!"

We're thrilled that Pink can find the silver lining in a hospitalization - and we're even happier that she'll be okay. Maybe she can swap hospital horror stories with these other celebs? They've all been hospitalized recently, too.

Elton John

Elton John was forced to cancel his Las Vegas shows in late May after a serious respiratory infection put him in a Los Angeles hospital. The singer had to drop several performances recuperate - but he promises to pay back fans when he can.

"It feels strange not to be able to perform these Million Dollar Piano concerts at The Colosseum. I love performing this show and I will be thrilled when we return to The Colosseum in October to complete the eleven concerts soon to be scheduled," he said in a statement. "All I can say to the fans is sorry I can't be with you. I hope to see you soon at this wonderful theatre at Caesars Palace."

Sarah Hyland

"Modern Family" cutie Sarah Hyland surprised fans when she announced that she'd gone through a kidney transplant in early 2012. The 21-year-old revealed to Seventeen magazine that she suffers from a serious disease known as kidney dysplasia. The disease can kill infants, but Hyland managed to survive - and thrive - despite it. Her father ended up donating one of his kidneys to her.

Most of all, the illness taught her who is really important in her life.

"There are people who came out of the woodwork, not because it was 'Oh hey, congratulations on your show winning an Emmy,'" she told the magazine. "No it was, 'Hey, I'm here for you.'"

Nick Cannon

"America's Got Talent" host - and Mariah Carey's husband - seemed invincible. The actor, comedian and radio host was always working on a bunch of projects - until serious health problems sidelined him, almost for good.

The father of Moroccan and Monroe Cannon was hospitalized in Aspen in January for sudden kidney failure. He got better, but then blood clots formed in his lungs a couple of months later.

The cause? "An autoimmune disease that [doctors] found in my system," Cannon told People in March, adding that it's "something I'm going to be living with all my life."

He eventually gave up his radio show and is putting his health first. Good thing too, dem babies need him!
