Lil Wayne On Recurrent Seizures
So scary. According to a new report, Lil Wayne was reportedly in the ICU ward in critical condition on Mar. 15 after suffering more seizures, following his Mar. 12 seizure-related hospitalization. TMZ reported that just hours after Lil Wayne was released from the hospital on Mar. 13, one of his bodyguards found him in his room, unconscious on the floor. He was then rushed to the hospital again, but unlike other time, he did not stabilize.
He was taken to the ICU, where he was reportedly placed in restraints because he was shaking uncontrollably. According to TMZ, he was “unstable” and was placed in a medically-induced coma, breathing through tubes.
The scene in Lil Wayne’s room was reportedly a grim one, with several people crying at his bedside. A number of rap artists and family members were said to be on the way at that time. The rapper had been shaking violently and uncontrollably. Even the rapper’s mother flew to Los Angeles, and all major decisions on his health, including the decision to stop life support were suspended till her arrival.
Sources further allege that Lil Wayne may have gone on a Sizzurp binge after being released from the hospital on Mar. 13, as doctors have reportedly found high amounts of codeine in his system. It’s reported that his stomach was pumped three times to remove the drugs from his system.
As previously reported, Wayne had been rushed to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on Mar. 12 after suffering what appeared to be multiple seizures. He was released just a few hours later, early in the morning of Mar. 13.
Wayne had also previously been hospitalized on Oct. 25, 2012, after experiencing “seizure-like symptoms”
