It's been less than a week since Lil Wayne was reported to be dying, on life support, and awaiting last rites.

And it's been about a month since he was the human target of a Miami-Dade County-wide "Fuck Wayne" campaign for beefing with the Miami Heat and snarling: "Fuck LeBron! Fuck She-Wade! And I fucked Chris Bosh's wife!"

But now he's back at home. Recovering. And Tweeting about not being dead.

UPDATE Lil Wayne has suffered another seizure. He's been rushed to the hospital. And he says, "I'm an epileptic, man."

Originally, while still in the intensive-care unit at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Hospital, Lil Wayne (or his team) tried to squash rumors of his imminent death by tweeting: "I'm good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love."

But following a six-day hospital and ICU stay that allegedly resulted from a sizzurp OD and nonstop seizures, Lil Wayne has been released, returning home and resting up and enjoying far safer recreational pursuits.

Like overdosing on sports television.
