Lil Wayne

OUT OF ICU

Upgraded to Stable Condition

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lil_wayne_gettyGood news for Lil Wayne -- the rapper has finally been moved out of the Intensive Care Unit at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after doctors determined his condition has stabilized ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the rapper tell us ... Wayne has been moved into a "regular room" at the hospital and no longer needs intense, round-the-clock treatment after a suspected codeine overdose last week.

We broke the story ... doctors pumped Wayne's stomach at least 3 times after the rapper began experiencing severe and violent seizures. He had been in the ICU since Wednesday.

Now, we're told the 30-year-old has been walking around the hospital floor on his own -- accompanied by a team of bodyguards.

We're told he's also eating on his own ... and could even be discharged from the hospital in the near future.

Wow, TMZ, he went from his last rites being administered to walking the hospital hallways. I guess "we broke it first" doesn't really apply in this case. Keep improving Wayne and please learn from this close call.

This fool should be embarrassed to face his oldest child, because she's the one out of them all that can see what is really going on with her father, but he'll feed her some crap about media lies and tell her; daddy was never really that sick "pumpkin" (like her head screws on & off).. Let's face it if he leaves that hospital and goes ANYWHERE other than an extended stay Rehab for 6 months he'll be (Three 6 Mafia voice) Sip,Sip,Sippin on the Sizzurp by the weekend!!
