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.

Lil Wayne hits the gates of his God Satan saying "Lord, I'm coming" If he has not asked to be forgiven for his sins, he will burn in hell for eternity.

Hmmm...TMZ has no qualms with calling celebrities out on the carpet but seems implement comment controls when the comments aren't in their favor. Thin skinned much, TMZ?

Personally, that little wanna be "little" punk (with that man giving him1 million dollars for his birthday and then calling him son? Maybe, it should be daughter? or, could it be lover/punk, looks like a woman wit that long hair and so many tattoos, to "prove' he is a "so called man" instead?) could croak and I would not miss a beat. He is a punk in the full context of the word, period. If, "Little' Wayne had ever hit me, or, he berated, hit, spit on, like he has others, he wouldn't have to worry about anything, anymore at all. That little twit would have no teeth and be a real big hit when he goes to jail again, there has been too many complaints of "little Wayne' bitting the foreskin, or, is it those braces?

What has this thug done to merit your indiscriminate devotion & attention? Promote drugs? Disrespect women? Abandon any semblance of family? Lead the youth astray? This thug has worked hard to DESTROY that which many many many others have worked hard to acheive. This thug encourages the abuse of drugs which DOES cause a breakdown in mental health and ultimately the breakdown of family & society.

The fact that you do NOT see anything wrong with this is pathetic. The youth are listening to his crud instead of reading books and learning.

When your society falls apart, don't blame us, look within and look at yourself and look at that which YOU support.

He's a MENACE to your society and you are too dim to see it.

"Black Is Beautiful" in some cases, but, not when it comes to "Little" Wayne, he is just a wanna be "Little" (I heard it was his "nickname" given to him by the other cons,when he went into the showers in jail, ouch!) b----/punk, plain and simple and anyone that hangs wit him, is the same, "Birds Of A Feather" really apply here! I do not see why TMZ gives this punk so much coverage, he has no redeeming quailties, NOT "ONE", he is just a foul mouthed, tatted up, nasty, foul tongued, little n---a, plain and simple, IMHO! In my day, back on LaBrea & Adams, near where the Hoover Street Crips originated, "Little" twit, er, Wayne, would have been punked the second he showed up looking like a "Little" crazy woman, wit that long hair, all tatted up. trying to look like he be bad or something! Wit all the coverage, we supposed to feel sorry for him because of a seizure, s---, my b---, or, his b--- I should say? I hear "Little' twit, er, Wayne, like it like dat!

I believe he did write that tweet last night. Things got really crazy at one point of his hospital stay and the doctors did there magic. TMZ has good connections. When TMZ launched this story I am sure there connection was right there and saw what was reported. He probably was then immediately taken to get his stomach pumped. Then things calmed down for him now he is just resting.

That's my take

This fool's choice to consume copious quantities of codeine over the course of years has taken its toll and " the roosters are coming home to roost."

No I do not have empathy for him. He has CHOSEN to disrespect his children, his many baby mamas, his friends, his society. While this homeboy is receiving a disproportionate amount of limited medical resources for the repeated abuse of codeine, other MORE DESERVING innocent victims of cir***stance are being marginalized. This is how health care works. While this thug is getting resources and manpower, another one's grandmother, or mother, or sister is not. That is the truth of the world of medicine.

This VIP is getting undeserved attention. Over 3 BILLION people are facing dire poverty in this world...those are people's mothers, fathers, children and THEY have my sympathy, not this arse who has chosen to take a very cush life and to throw it all away. His roosters coming home to roost, end of.
