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.

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....

Why in the hell does he smoke and drink poop? If he dies there will be an autopsy and the truth will be revealed. Afraid of death, then stop doing the devil's food.

LIL WAYNE, Why do you keep running to the hospital for seizures, all your money will not save you from this. The only thing you can do is take your seizure meds. If you are taking them, the doctor may have to increase your meds. The hotter it is, your chances for seizures will increase. Train you folks what to do in this type of situation.

I almost had a seizure after hearing "Rich as F---"on a radio station, as I was channel surfing on Sirius radio! My teenage daughter hears this crap. Critical? What is critical is that this crap gets off the radio and out or our homes, cars, and ears!!! His music is trash!!! Enough said.
