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.

That is great news. I was actually quite upset over the initial TMZ reports. Wayne has kids, and they could have heard the rumors of his alleged 'coma' and 'last rites' that was all over the internet, based solely on TMZ’s articles. This type of situation should have remained a private matter until Wayne or his people wished otherwise.


I HOPE this report is accurate and he doesn't have any permanent brain damage. I understand why many people disapprove of Wayne, but sometimes addiction can really alter one’s personality. I hope this is his rock bottom and he gets some help for his disease (addiction). He is a powerful player in the world of hip hop and rap. With great power comes greater responsibility … clean it up and be a better role model for your kids and your fans, Wayne. Best wishes. :)

On the Real Lil Wayne is still in an induced coma give it a week and you will hear the truth. I guarantee no one can honestly tell you that they have been talking to him. Walking around after getting all that codeine pumped out Bull Sh*t

Since he had all that codeine in his system when he gets out of the hospital he should be arrested.
