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.

Thanks to his idiocy maybe big brother will outlaw the concoction he drank. He has given his race nothing to be proud of Countless baby mamas & senseless behavior for an "adult". Money will also bring out the true personality of a person & it is a shame this is how he represents himself to the world. A drug addict.

Hopefully he will learn from this, and not be known as Lil Wayne the rapper with the wet brain!

Does he have a court date coming up that he's trying to get out of again or something? So bored of this guy! Glad to see EMINEM though... even if the story is not connected!

Caught the last sentence " We're told he's also eating on his own"
My son is severely disabled not by choice and is now 25. He has a g-tube for all of his nutrition because he is a silent asperator. Was just thinking how sad it is that people like this guy would be so willing to self induce themselves into seizures by stupidly abusing meds rather they be legal or not. wow give the guy kudos he can now feed himself. Just annoying to think that this guy has a choice to live life with no limits and it will be himself to ultimately stop all of it because he chooses drugs over life and living for his child that did not ask for any of this.
