Lil Wayne

Day 6 in Intensive Care

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.

I am praying for a full recovery. @alll of these hateful bitter people with all of their judgemental comments I say let he with out sin cast the first stone don't hate others for commiting different sins than you do. We all have had tuff times who are you all to turn up your noses. And who cares if he cares if I die. What does that have to do with you caring for others without expecting something in return. My love gos out to him and his family. God bless

dude needs pain killers to kill the pain of looking in the mirror at what he has done to his face.

how is he in the ICU still? i have been in the ICU so many times and if someone visits you it has to be guardian or someone really close to you and about two people at a time i guess Chris Paul is really close to him?

This is not good news, Sadly when I overdosed on pills I was only in the ICU for two days. Codeine is always mixed with Tylenol. It's not the codeine that is extremely dangerous; it's the large amounts of tylenol that destroy the liver. He probably needs a liver transplant, but I suspect he is going to die before then. I always knew he would die eventually, and it will most likely lead to the collapse of Nicki Minaj's career, like it did for Lil' Kim when Biggie died. My prayers are with him and his loved ones.
