6:30 PM PT -- Sources at the hospital tell us Wayne is still in critical condition in the ICU ... but stabilizing.

We're told the prognosis is uncertain.

Wayne is sleeping right now ... which is odd, because he just tweeted saying he's OK and thanking people for the prayers and love.

5:16 PM PT
-- Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles -- and we're told all major decisions about Wayne's health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.

Lil Wayne
is in ICU in critical condition after suffering yet another seizure, and we're told it doesn't look good ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... the 30-year-old rapper was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures.  He was released Wednesday but just hours later one of his bodyguards found him in his room, on the floor and unconscious.

Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, but this time he did not stabilize.  He was taken to ICU, where he was placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably.

We're told Wayne is currently "unstable," and has been placed in an induced coma.  He is breathing through tubes.

We're told several people are at Wayne's bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way.  Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.

Sources say there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.

We're told Wanye's stomach was pumped 3 times to flush the drugs from his system.

Yikes, please get better! Stupid decision on his part but he has kids and it'd be sad for them to lose their dad this way.

This is sad and unfortunate. I'm sure his binge was the reason for this. When are these celebs going to learn? Very sad and I hope he makes it and changes his life.

According to Mack Maine and Birdman, Lil Wayne is alive and doing fine. Look up Mack Maine on Twitter. TMZ is just dumb.

Please get him on RSO/cannabis oil asap!!! You're in LA so finding it should be quick and easy. Rub it on his gums and let it work. That will save him.

How sad and stupid is this that he kills himself with that Sizzurp crap. Wake up Justin Bieber; this is fair warning for you.

I hope he makes it through this. If not, he'll be hoisted up with the likes of Tupac and Biggie as being rap icons. Sorry, those 2 had talent. Wayne only had autotune. But even though I despise his "music", I still hope he pulls through.

I'm sickened by the lacking empathy because he's a drug user. Someone you know loves someone addicted to drugs. It's a huge epidemic and it's not funny, especially when it's you who loses a person to them. While the whole world laughed at him, he clearly needed help. Didn't he get shot at 9 and was an orphan? He had a messed up life. Who are some of you people to stick your noses up at someone for drug use, especially when our Healthcare System gives them out like free candy.

According to Mack Maine and Nikki Minaj on twitter, This isn't an accurate story. Not sure what to believe. Not really a lil Wayne fan, but would feel bad for his kids if anything happened to him.

Don't feel bad for him people. He lived the life he wanted, and he knew he was going to die. You don't go on a binge the way he did and not invite death.
