It was his second visit to the hospital in one week. Wayne suffered a bout of seizures earlier in the week, and was treated and released. Later he was found unconscious by a member of his entourage and brought back to the hospital. TMZ reports Wayne's stomach had to be pumped three times due to the large amounts of codeine in his system.

The 30-year-old rapper is now said to be walking around the hospital now with a team of bodyguards and is able to eat on his own. Over the weekend, Wayne had visits from Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Usher -- who asked fans at the SXSW music festival to help him send positive energy to his friend.
