Sources tell us … Wayne’s condition has not improved enough to be moved out of the ICU … and he continues to be monitored very closely by staff at L.A..’s Cedars-Sinai hospital.
We know Wayne has been surrounded by friends and family since he was admitted to the ICU this past Wednesday … and we’re told the mood around Wayne’s bedside has been very serious.
Among Wayne’s visitors — Drake, Chris Paul, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and others.
TMZ broke the story … Wayne’s stomach was pumped at least 3 times after doctors suspected he had overdosed on the prescription drug codeine … the main ingredient in “sizzurp.”
Wayne has struggled with codeine for years — and just a few months ago suggested he had quit using the powerful painkiller.
