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.

I understand his family and friends sugar coating saying he is watching a basketball game in icu. However I don't think tmz is completely lying. Anyone on this blog who works in a hospital and myself from experience knows you have to be really ill to be in that department. They just don't put you in there for fun. It's more monitoring and majority of those patients are in bad shape. I hope he is not having these seizures for other reason as well; he has young children.

I feel no sympathy for this man, he only caused this to himself. Good riddens , hopefully more idiotic rappers who exploit these dangerous drugs to children & teenagers go the same route as 'Weezy' & all just disappear , they're ruining the next generation of American kids, I see it all in the lyrics of upcoming local rappers, repeating the same nonsense that these mainstream rappers say. so I say lets these idiots kill themselves with drugs. Im glad that this is happening to the biggest rapper out now. get rid of all these new generation rappers & bring back REAL RAP music when it use to have a MESSAGE & use to be poetry. Now it's all about drugs & hoes & money. same **** every single song. I bet you the next hit rap song will about drugs hoes & money & every uneducated child will be singing along thinking it's cool .. **** I hate humans.. **** wake up people ..

Just a week ago, you guys were calling him a seriously ugly mofo, saying good riddins... NOW you are all kissing @$$ and sending well wishes. There are some 2 faced posters around here. I am glad to see there is some sympathy for a sick person... no matter who it is.

Hate to wish any ill for anyone, BUT, unless his life changed, once back on the street he would still be the wsste of space he has been all the time. The vulgarity, the disrespect, the violence and evil that hip hop brings to the world and so many are just too stupid to admit or accept the damage it's done. For anyone that's a fan of hip hop, ANY TIME they lose a loved one to violence, drive by, whatever, they should be REQUIRED to put a banner over the casket that says, "We're helping to keep it Gangsta". Amazing that a person who only a few years ago was restricted so much from eating in a resturant, drinking from a fountain, going to a good school, beaten and harassed for their color would use the little bit of freedom they now have to pollute and contiminate the world with their filth.
