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.

I'm from Houston and I cringe when you guys say "Sizzurp", like it's normal thing. It's promethazine with codeine. Or "Syrup"...Hell even Purple Stuff but please not sizzurp.

Not a fan of his but I hope he pulls through. i had a feeling that all these siezures he was having was drug induced. I was with an addict once who had a seizure it was one of the scariest things I ever witnessed,

You guys are tearing this guy apart, saying its "self inflicted". Addiction is a disease not a behavioral issue. It's not his fault he was born with a genetic predisposition to having substance abuse issues. You be in the lime light since age 14, withstand the test of time, and drop countless hit after mf hit. We don't know the pressures of being at the top- coupled with any addiction inclinations he may have. Jeeze

As someone who has had a young person addicted to drugs and killed by them, which I hope doesn't happen to Lil Wayne, I know how it affects the family and friends, and it is very sad. Poor guy.
