Lil Wayne Seizures - Rapper Released From Hospital19 March 2013
Lil' Wayne to recover at home 6 days after hospital admission
Six days ago, uncontrollable seizures landed Lil Wayne in hospital, while conflicting reports of his critical condition and possible death circled the media. Now, though, TMZ report that he’s been released from from the ICU to recuperate at home.
The news came just hours after it was reported that his condition had not improved enough to be moved out of the intensive care unit. Weezy took to Twitter to reassure his fans, posting: “I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love,” while the president of the Young Money record label, Mack Maine told everyone: “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon.” He added: “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but don't believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe...that's false!!” This weekend, the rapper’s famous buddies came to wish him well at his bedside, with Nicki Minaj, Drake, Chris Paul and Birdman all purchasing grapes, we’re sure. Reports suggest that this was a form of drug overdose, brought on by Wayne’s penchant for Codeine, which is the main ingredient in his drink: ‘Sizzurp’.
Recovering - Lil Wayne
Sources said, “there's evidence Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released Wednesday, because doctors found high amounts of codeine in his system.” And this is not the first time the singer has suffered from seizures. Back in October, he suffered them while on-board a flight from Texas to L.A., causing the plane to re-route to Louisiana so he could be admitted to hospital.
