Lil Wayne

Day 6 in Intensive Care

EXCLUSIVE

0318_lil_wayne_01

Lil Wayne is still in rough shape ... and remains in the intensive care unit at an L.A. hospital 6 days after being admitted for seizures stemming from a suspected drug overdose ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... Wayne's condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU ... and he continues to be monitored very closely by staff at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai hospital.

We know Wayne has been surrounded by friends and family since he was admitted to the ICU this past Wednesday ... and we're told the mood around Wayne's bedside has been very serious.

Among Wayne's visitors -- Drake, Chris Paul, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and others.

TMZ broke the story ... Wayne's stomach was pumped at least 3 times after doctors suspected he had overdosed on the prescription drug codeine ... the main ingredient in "sizzurp."

Wayne has struggled with codeine for years -- and just a few months ago suggested he had quit using the powerful painkiller.

From his statements he hasn't "struggled" with codeine.flat refused to quit.
The longer he is in intensive care the less likely he will walk out.

If this fool were to somehow miraculously recover, he wouldn't remember any of this, and he'd simply continue to drink his DRANK and all of this will start all over again, so spare us the drama and just let nature take its course, thank you.

I believe TMZ I think lil Wayne is screwed he screwed himself up with all the drug usage. He might not be as bad off as TMZ reported in the first story Yet but I think he's going to get worse and weeks to come just watch and see

Not that I care at all about this waste of space but...because of idiots like him, the people out here in Real Ppl Land who NEED pain medication for actual Chronic Pain Conditions are having harder and harder times getting their medications. Thanks a lot, A'hole (and everyone else on here abusing prescription medications).
