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.

It's time to quit using if it causes you to have seizures and puts you in a coma.

It seems everyone wants to talk **** about Lil' Wayne and put their two cents in in the comment section of the stories about Wayne being in the hospital/people visiting. If you can't say something nice dont say anything at all. This man is in ICU, its not the time to give your review on his rapping skills. Whether you like his music or not, he is a human who is going through a tough time, and if you haven't experienced his struggle first hand then you have no room to speak.

I'm sure everything that TMZ said from the beginning was true cause why would all these rappers like eminem, nicki minaj, eminem, and drake be showing up at the hospital to see him if it wasn't true?? People are just trying to cover it up from his fans so they don't get worried!

How is this day 6 ? He went in to the hospital on Wednesday and come home Wednesday, he went to the hospital on Friday, today is Monday- your story come out friday evening that he was in a coma with tubes down this throat and last rites given? Still sticken to that story because no one else is.

TMZ is usually dead on with their reporting so I'm going to believe their information is more accurate than Wayne's "team".

It's important for folks who suffer seizures know the truth about drug induced siezures because it's otherwise terrifying for them...wayne likely will die ,he's likely killed way to many brain cells.

So what's the real deal??? Are his friends just ****tin' the public by saying his doing just fine, watching TV, talking and almost ready to come home?? This report makes it sound like he's not even conscious and isn't doing well at all. SO WHICH IS IT? He's doing better or he's on his deathbed????
