ORIGINAL: Lil Wayne has been hospitalized and is in critical condition after suffering another seizure. TMZ reports that the rapper was rushed to the hospital again on Wednesday after one of his bodyguards found him in his room on the floor and unconscious. This was just hours after he was released on Tuesday for suffering multiple seizures.
The site reports that Wayne didn't stabilize like he did last time and was shaking uncontrollably. He was taken to ICU and palced in restraints. Wayne is currently in an unstable condition and has been placed in an induced coma. He is currently breathing through tubes.
Several people are said to be at his bedside crying and a number of rap artists and family members are on the way. Sources say that there is Wayne may have gone on a "Sizzurp" binge--a combination of fruit-flavored soda and codeine syrup--because doctors found high levels of codeine in his system. Wayne's stomach was pumped three times in order to flush the codeine out.
