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.

Sorry to hear about Lil Wayne. I don't agree with the cold hearted comment. You have. No idea what this young man has been through and seizures are not only caused by drugs. You have no idea the true cause so no reason whatsoever for passing judgement. I suffer with them and it sure is not caused by drugs thank you very much. God doesn't like ugly. Just pray and hope he makes it.

I feel bad for LIl Wayne, but if he is taking drugs and has seizures then how do you feel sorry for him?? Didn't he learn after Michael Jackson? Whitney Houston? List goes on........ And also if he did it once, he will do it again. Where are his family and friends?? Didn't they learn after the for mentioned Michael and Whitney???

Are they sure this is due to epilepsy or seizures brought on by drug abuse? I had never heard in all of his music career that he had epilepsy, now all of a sudden it's general epilepsy? Epilepsy due to what...?

OMG what was that idiot thinking???? You can't do that. That stuff he was taking dehydrates the body in like 16 seconds. My cat got dehydrated and was having seizures until I got her a new water system, and good bye to those. Lil Wayne has to be the dumbest person to go right back to that drug.

He brags about the syrup and pills in his lyrics....Opiates = seizures, classic symptom of such abuse...Given he's at this stage of abuse, his organs "shutting down" should be couple years around the corner...Be smart and write a Will now, or Baby and Cash Money will rob your mom after your dead like Suge and Death Row did Tupacs mother. Shoot, Baby's probably the one that got you hooked on purpose....
