Lil Wayne

In Critical Condition

After More Seizures

3/15/2013 6:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

He Really Should Have Know Better

Purple drank is confirmed or suspected to have caused the deaths of several prominent users. Respiratory depression is a potentially serious or fatal adverse drug reaction associated with the use of codeine, but mainly the danger lies in the much more potent and CNS-depressing phenothiazine-related antihistamine promethazine. This depression is dose-related and is the mechanism for the potentially fatal consequences of overdose: respiratory or cardiac arrest. As with most CNS depressants, mixing with alcohol greatly increases the risk of respiratory failure and other complications

God be with him and his family. Give them the peace and comfort they need at this time.

People who look up to him, please pay attention. THIS is what drugs do. They rob you of your life in one way or another.

let's hear it for these dumba*s's songs: Three 6 Mafia’s “Sippin’ on Some Sizzurp” and Lil’ Wayne’s “Me and My Drank.” maybe fewer kids will listen to these idiots.

He's an idiot but I wish him a healthy recovery. THEN he might actually become a role model that deserves to be called a role model.

Like doctors are letting some street bum like Mack Maine into ICU to see the guy. Give me a break, this guy is trying to sponge off his dead mentor one more time.

tiny_dancer5678 one else is reporting this story which I find rather odd....not E!, MTV (which I figured would definitely have something posted), or People. I think it's BS too, to be quite honest.
