Usher UsherBrazil200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Usher's wife Tameka Foster Raymond continues to recover in a Brazilian Hospital after suffering a near fatal complication during cosmetic surgery.

Raymond, 38, was undergoing liposuction on her abdomen following the birth of her fifth child when she reportedly went into cardiac arrest.

Doctors put Raymond in a medically induced coma to stabilize her. She was then transfered to the intensive care unit at a well respected hospital in Sao Paulo.

Raymond, who gave birth to Naviyd Ely Raymond two months ago, was reportedly thought to be in good health. Although, many doctors say surgery of this sort should not be performed until at least 3 months after pregnancy.

Usher, who cancelled his scheduled performance at Sunday's Grammy awards to travel to Brazil, is reportedly with his wife and their children.

Doctors expect Raymond to make a full recovery.
