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.

You want to fool with drugs, this is what happens. MAYBE this will be a wakeup call to his peers who think they are untouchable and can do what they want because they have $$$$$!

i've always believed that this man was trying to kill himself.
Everything about him and his music screams, "Someone Please Love ME!!!" but it doesn't really seem like anyone in his life does.
Look at how covered in tattoos he is-if there was a single person in his life that loved him, he wouldn't have that many. Believe me, i understand wanting to cover yourself in cool ink-i want to do it all the time, but i have people in my life that love me enough to tell me that it's not an overall good idea, despite how fully kick-ass it'll look.
This just makes me sad, he has a world full of fans that truly truly love him, but not a single person close to him that does. That's like lonely to an impossible degree.

Off topic-it's nice to see that the rest of the world is finally interested in Kat Dahlia, but even though Gangsta is good, Do Better and Loins Den are both better.

God is merciful, gracious, full of compassion, and slow to anger. He will not strive or keep his anger forever, he loves every one of us, whether we serve him or not. So I pray for Lil Wayne that God's mercy be upon him, and the healing power of Jesus will over power him, and the presence of the Holy Spirit will not leave him. For nothing is impossible with God.

Too bad. His reckless behavior sometimes leads to the hospital or worse. Look for the pose to steal anything that is not nailed down. They are worried big time about their ticket to heaven crapping out and leaving them destitute. Look for a small spike in violent crime near Beverly Center.

RIP!

I notice that the update about waynes last rites being read has been removed. Some of this doesnt make sense. Why would they put someone restrain someone who is violently shaking that could actually do more damage than good. I think a muscle relaxer would be better in that situation.

Regardless of poor choices or not a life is a life, he has friends, family and fans who love and respect him and the pain they will feel is real. I pray for him and his family. I'm not a huge fan of his music, a few song for sure but I still have respect.
