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.

R.I.P Lil dude... no amount of money can pay off God. I hope you make it, but if you don't let this be a lesson to everyone who does illegal drugs and thinks it wont have any long term effects... Look at your homeboy now, fighting for his life.

P.S. what's with all the Seizures in Hollywood lately, didn't Kelly Osborne have a sevre on last week, is there some bad Shiznet out there or what? Better ask somebody.

I believe Lil Wayne was a GATE kid growing up and I wouldn't be surprised if his mental processing abilities has been damaged over the years. Seizures can reduce the amount of oxygen your body gets, which can lead to brain damage and being developmentally delayed/having cognitive problems. I've encountered several students who would be in general ed classes if they hadn't had so many seizures in their lives, but they can't handle learning in such environments because of what has happened to their brains and now are special education students.

It's not a seizure - it's a SIZZUR-e

Wow ...    

This is why you do not do drugs. Justin B are you listening? Though I am not a fan of lil I do wish him well. Perhaps he can get the help needed to turn his life around - if he makes it.

Even though I dislike Lil Wayne so much, I would never wish a man dead. But using drugs just after being released from the hospital, that's just plain stupid. That's the problem with rich people, they think they are invicible until death catches them .... the only justice in this life.

Good riddance. One less idiot on the planet using up our precious oxygen. No sympathy at all for this piece of trash.

If he pulls out of this there is a very good chance he could have brain damage, sounds like the seizures alcoholics have & those seizures can kill you or leave you with wet brain (brain damaged) for life. I wonder who gave him all the codiene????? Whoever did is probably sweating bullets right about now!

Oh no. I really hope he pulls through and goes to detox rehab ASAP - if it's not too late. DJ Paul said he has lost friends to that drink. Best wishes and prayers to him, his family, friends and loved ones.
