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.

Shame on you haters. He is a human being, fallible like the rest of us, and has a family and children that love him dearly. Show some decency and compassion for them if nothing else.

From his manager: "We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!"

Mack Maine tweeted he's watching basketball with Lil Wayne and Birdman tweeted that Lil Wayne is feeling better and not to believe the nonsense bout comas. Sounds like fail reporting by TMZ.

Honestly I would think if mackmaine was really with him right now and he was alive and ok they would of posted a photo of him, like justin bieber did. TMZ is usually pretty accurate with these types of stories and certainly isn't like the national enquirer. perhaps mack maine was with him earlier and hasn't yet been updated or refuses to believe the situation is as dire as it is. I only say this because these days, with twitter/facebook/instagram celebrities tend to post photos of just about everything they do and certainly with millions of fans freaking out and thinking hes dying, I would assume if the info this guy is giving is true, they would have taken some cheesy picture of him and wayne in the hospital, watching the game with a lame thumbs up and cheesy smile. Just saying....

No sympathy from me for Wayne, Blohan, or any of the others out there who have NO self respect and NO respect for Health. People do anything to have good health and these fools throw it away.

Choices are made. There are consequences to foolish choices.
