UPDATE: Lil Wayne is back on the road, and not slowing down at all … after getting treated for the seizures he suffered on board his private jet.
Our Weezy sources tell us he checked out of the Omaha hospital on Tuesday and immediately made a beeline out of town — despite having made 2 emergency landings on Monday when the seizures started.
We’re told Wayne is not cancelling any shows — his next one is scheduled for Saturday in Kansas City. As we told you … Wayne was seen double-cupping a lot of codeine syrup Sunday night in Milwaukee.
It’s unclear if his latest seizures were brought on by lean — like they were 3 years ago — but, for now, Wayne doesn’t seem worried.
