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.

tmz always over-sensationalizes everything. Maybe get some FACTS before reporting something as serious as this. tmz has no respect for anyone they report on and is making money off lies.

1st like to say get well. Lil wayne is a grown man yes but addiction or recovering addict isn't a easy thing to beat its a everyday struggle. Whether wat tmz is wrote is true or not he's human. I pray for his family meaning his mom n kids that they get threw this n especially lil wayne. Rock pop rnb rap u name it mid class poor rich we don't need to lose another person n yes celebs have more money but that doesn't mean their not subject to b addicts or not perfect cause no1 is. God bless u lil wayne n get well soon!

This comes to show you that he needs help and if he recovers maybe he'll leave the Illuminati and go with God. I will pray to the Lord tonight and ask him to save his soul from the evil and help him get on his feet. Lord...hear my prayer in this very place and save his soul from the darkness
