Lil Wayne In ICU In Critical Condition After More Seizures [UPDATED]
Lil Wayne is in ICU in critical condition after he suffered more seizures, and according to reports from TMZ, it doesn't look too good. The 30-year-old rapper, real name Dwayne Carter, was rushed to Cedars-Siniai Hospital in L.A. earlier this week, but hours after his release on Wednesday bodyguards found him unconscious on the floor of his room.
He was rushed to the hospital again, but did not stabilize this time around. Reports say he was placed in restraints due to his uncontrollable shaking. He is currently listed as "unstable" in ICU in an induced coma and breathing through tubes.
Sources also say that Weezy went on a syrup binge after his release from the hospital on Wednesday because doctors found an enormous amount of codeine in his system - enough to pump his stomach three times just to flush to drugs from his system.
The scene at Wayne's bedside isn't a good one.
We're told several people are at Wayne's bedside crying, and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say the scene is violent as Wayne shakes uncontrollably.
We hope Wayne can pull through, and will continue to update you as we receive information.

(UPDATE (8:45 p.m.): Well, it appears that Lil Wayne has "tweeted" from his own account saying that he is fine, and TMZ is now reporting that while the prognosis is still uncertain, Wayne is stabilizing. They also noted that it is odd that he "tweeted" because their sources say that he is sleeping.
