It’s probably not how he envisioned himself spending the holidays.
But it looks like Kanye West will be forced to stay in hospital throughout Thanksgiving.
The 39-year-old was rushed to UCLA Medical Center after a reported breakdown on Monday

People reported that his wife Kim Kardashian left his bedside for the first time late on Wednesday, with a bodyguard in tow.
But the mag claimed she was expecting to return first thing in the morning.
A source claimed the rapper is ‘starting to feel more like himself, and that he understands the importance of ‘resting and getting help.’
‘They are taking it day by day. He understands that getting help at the hospital was necessary,’ they said.
The good wife: ‘He just needed some rest,’ the source said. ‘[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great’
Earlier Entertainment Tonight had reported Kanye was ‘doing much better’ since the scare.
It was added his wife Kim was by his side tending to his needs, and had even canceled an appearance in New York City to help him out.
‘He just needed some rest,’ the source said.
‘[Kim] is currently with Kanye right now at his side. Kim feels more connected to Kanye than ever. Their marriage is doing great.’
A source said he had a ‘mental breakdown’ from pushing himself too hard with his Pablo tour and design commitments.

‘It was a combination of a lot of issues: stress, anxiety, paranoia. He just broke,’ the source previously told ET.
‘There have been signs recently of him just overwhelmed. Kanye hasn’t been himself for a while.’
According to UCLA’s Resnick Neuropsychiatric Hospital website, the process is very involved: ‘The patient will be seen by an emergency department physician who will perform a basic medical screening examination and determine whether the patient needs additional consultation from specialty services.
‘If indicated, the psychiatric consultant will then be called to assess the patient. This entire process can take anywhere from minutes to hours depending on the volume and severity of cases in the emergency department.’
Kim was ‘terrified’ when she heard the news of her husband’s breakdown.

‘She was so scared when she heard the news and rushed to his side,’ the source said. ‘There was no question about her staying in NYC. She had to be with him last night.’
Kris Jenner said on Monday Kanye was ‘exhausted.’
She added: ‘It’s a grueling tour.’
‘Kim is being amazing’ to her husband during his hospitalization, ‘as are all of his friends and team and inner circle,’ a source told People.
Kanye, 39, was at trainer Harley Pasternak’s home on Monday when he started ‘acting erratically,’ according to People.
A call was made at about 1:20pm for a disturbance.
He was later escorted to UCLA Medical Center and admitted ‘at will’ but under the advice of a physician after a ‘temporary psychosis’ brought on by dehydration and exhaustion, TMZ reported.

Meanwhile, Kim has been under a lot of stress too.
On October 3, she was tied, gagged and held at gunpoint at the No Address hotel apartment and robbed of her jewelry.
The mother of two was due to make her comeback to public life and her first red carpet appearance since the robbery at Denise Rich’s Angel Ball on Monday evening.
She was spotted flying to the Big Apple on Monday but returned back to LA following Kanye’s hospitalization.
Their children North, three, and Saint, 11 months, are currently in the care of their nannies while Kim is by Kanye’s side.

Kanye recently cancelled the last 21 stops for his Saint Pablo tour.
Another contributing factor to his health incident was the time of year.
His late mother Donda West died on November 10, 2007 at the age of 58 after complications from cosmetic surgery.
A source for People revealed that ‘the anniversary of his mom’s death is an aspect of what’s going on in that it’s added emotional stress.’
Adding that: ‘This time of year always brings him a lot of pain. He keeps that pain internalized, but sometimes will talk about how hard this time of year is for him.’
