Lil Wayne

In Critical Condition

After More Seizures

3/15/2013 6:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

He's a frickin misogynist ! To the point of wanting to eliminate child support just because of his hatred of women. What about the children , you dick. Hard to have sympathy for a hateful man like that.

Life is not a joke & the story going around that Little Wayne tweeted he is fine. My friend was born with seizures and spent most of his life in & out of hospitals and in ICU many times. He eventually got brain surgery to stop the seizures so he can live a normal life. I hope this is not a stunt because it is not funny.

I feel for his family, but this is his own doing. Nobody is shoving codeine down his throat except himself. If he wants to die like a degenerate drug addict then so be it. Life is a gift and he is wasting it.

Even if it was self induced he still deserves people's love and prayers. What? You think just because people are rich that their lives are perfect? Ahhahahahaha Remember Howard Hughes? Richer than anyone ever and a complete mental breakdown person. Love One Another!!! I will be praying for Lil Wayne!

I hope Wayne gets through this ordeal and is able to get off the painkillers. It will be a tough time for hime because those painkillers are a very hard thing to get off of but I think he is more than strong enough of a person to do it. Good luck bro
