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 would like to start off by saying that I know cmymb camp is going through a rough time so I don't want to sound insensitive but they are all a bunch of damn FOOLS! First of all they have no right to be angry at TMZ for posting facts. I have been a fan and BELIVER of TMZ. Harvey is a lawyer and he knows what he can and can not post. Harvey's info is on point and when a mistake is made it is quickly acknowledged and rectified. Lil Wayne is KILLING himself, so don't lash out at TMZ . Everyone in Wayne's camp needs to be planning a intervention or else their beloved Wayne won't be alive a month from now! I'm a 35 year old African American that is tired of Lil Wayne, his music and his antics but I still wish him the best.

TMZ was wrong on this one. Many texted me how he was going to die and he was in a coma.

TMZ needs to dump that stupid tv show they have and get back to telling the true story

hopefully, he will pull through, not into his music or anything about him. But its nice when celebs can turn their lives around. Even if it is self-inflicted, he deserves a chance to change. Enough with these clowns, being the looked upto by kids...

You guys are idiots to believe that Lil Wayne actually tweeted that himself. What's more likely - TMZ completely pulled this story out of their azz, or Lil Wayne's camp is trying to cover up how grim the situation really is? Do you think they're really going to come out and say that he had too much purple drank and might not make it? Give me a break. The vagueness of their comments indicates that there is a lot more to the story than what they're sharing with us. Don't believe every tweet you read.
