Rap star Lil Wayne has been hospitalized for the second time this week due to seizures and this time he may be dying. According to a story initially released by TMZ on Thursday, March 14, 2013, the rapper started suffering seizure attacks on Tuesday, March 12, but was released from the Cedars-Sinai Hospital several hours later after receiving treatment. Today (March 15), TMZ released another story stating the Lil Wayne was rushed back to Cedars-Sinai Hospital after being found unconscious by body guards in his room Thursday morning.
Doctors are not optimistic that Lil Wayne is going to be able to pull through the way he has after previously having seizures. At 5:16 PST TMZ updated the story to say, “We're told Wayne is being given his last rites ... with his family surrounding him to say their goodbyes.”
Currently, the rapper is in “unstable” condition and has been placed into an induced coma to prevent the violent seizures he has been having. He is surrounded by family, friends, and fellow rap artists as they pray for him to pull through with tears in their eyes.
Sources tell TMZ that there is evidence that Lil Wayne went on a Sizzurp binge after being released from the hospital on Wednesday after the first seizure attacks. The rap star’s stomach had to be pumped 3 times to flush all of the drugs out of his system.
For readers who are unfamiliar with the drug Sizzurp, Urbandictionary.com gives the recipe and description of what it is. According to the site, the original recipe contains Promethazine w/Codeine syrup , any fruit flavored soda , and a jolly rancher all combined to make what is known as Sizzurp. A brief description states, “The codeine is mainly responsible for the euphoria felt after drinking sizzurp. Promethazine causes motor skill impairment, lethargy, and extreme drowsiness.”
Lil Wayne first encountered seizure problems back in October 2012 when it was reported that he started having them on an airplane from Texas to LAX. He was prescribed seizure medication when those attacks occurred but there is no word on whether he had been taking it or not.
