Nate Dogg Stable after Second Stroke

9/16/2008 5:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned hip-hop legend Nate Dogg is still hangin' on after suffering a stroke 11 days ago -- his second in the last year.

We're told Nate is in stable condition in a hospital ward, but is using an assisted breathing tube -- which is not required but makes breathing easier for him. Despite other reports, Dogg, who is currently sedated, did NOT suffer any brain damage.

According to our sources it's too early to tell how this stroke will impact the use of his limbs (his arm and leg were affected from the first stroke) -- but there isn't much movement below his neck at this time.

Nate's due in court on the 24th to face felony charges after he allegedly made death threats to his estranged wife.

First off and formost i would like to say that my prayers goes out to NATE D O Dubble G and and his family. NATE has a smooth throw back melody to his sound of singing. I'm a big fan of his music. I always have been. We all go threw things in life. I'm pissed off about some of the comments that i have read regarding my OG friend for life. Their are a lot of disrespectful people out here in this world of ours. The comments that i've heard on here makes me want to have a up close and personal conversation with some of them and not just with words streight concrete street type of conversations. I hope nothing like that ever happens to anyone you may know or a family memeber of yours. You see NATE isn't just a well known early rapper that could sing he is family so when you disrespect him like alot of those that left negitive comments about what has happen to him you insult me also. I'm in total disbelief. Their is no compassion for anyone anymore forget he's a professional artist. He's a human being first and formost. A stroke can happen to anyone. Their is diffently education needed for those that are not knowning some, or all things that may cause a stroke. Life is short and it's a bitch don't be disrespectful toward someone that has had a major health crisis in their life. Pray for them and their family through these trying and difficult times. Some of you should be BURIED ALIVE for some of the comments that have been stated on here. I will say a prayer for you too because the weak and ignorant doens't know any better. NATE DOGG get better soon. Stay Strong you are in my prayers 1 LOVE HOMMIE. OG4LIFE Love your music man

Wow, unbelievable how mean, cruel, and judgmental people can be. First of all, only God can judge. But now that Nate Dogg has passed away, hopefully some of you will go back, read and reflect on the negative comments you posted (about someone you probably don't even know).

My deepest condolences go out to the family, friends and fans of Nate Dogg. He will surely be missed. We greatly appreciate the music and legacy he left.

Peace & Love,
Iris T.
