The rapper was hospitalized Tuesday night after suffering multiple seizures, but was released Wednesday after he stabilized. Today, he did not stabilize.

Wayne was rushed to the hospital again, and placed in restraints in the ICU because he was shaking uncontrollably. He was then placed in an induced coma.

Earlier this afternoon, he was breathing through tubes.

Several people are at Wayne's bedside, both rap artists and family members. There's evidence that he went on a sizzurp binge after his release Wednesday.

Doctors found high amounts of codeine in the 30-year-old's system. Wanye's stomach was pumped three times to flush the drugs from his system.

This took place earlier this afternoon, Pacific Time.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne's mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles, and no major medical decisions will be made until she arrives.

UPDATE: As of a few minutes ago, Weezy is said to be stabilizing finally, so there is some reason for hope, but his prognosis is still uncertain.

UPDATE #2: Wayne is still in the ICU but has reportedly stabilized. "I'm good everybody. Thx for all the prayers and love," Wayne said on Twitter.

Wow. We're cautiously optimistic, but that was a quick turnaround.

Rapper Mack Maine said on Twitter that LW is "alive and well. We watching the Syracuse (basketball) game... thanks for the prayers and concern."

SIDE NOTE: Syracuse outlasted Georgetown in OT, 58-55.

UPDATE #3: Reps now confirm that the seizures but say Weezy is "recovering." at this time. Rapper Birdman, Lil Wayne’s mentor, also tweeting:

"My son is in good spirit... feelin much betta... be home soon.”
