R&B singer Usher's wife, Tameka Raymond, is back in the U.S.

Raymond left Brazil on Wednesday on a flight home, a day after being discharged from a Sao Paulo hospital where she had been recovering after suffering a heart attack during a routine liposuction operation gone terribly wrong.

E! News reports that Raymond made her way through Sao Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport, chatting on her cell phone and looking more or less in a good mood.

Usher's wife had travelled to Brazil to have a routine nip/tuck, but ended up suffering cardiac arrest while she was being put under general anesthesia. Doctors managed to revive her, and she was placed in an induced coma for 24 hours to avoid "unnecessary complications."

Upon hearing the news, Usher, 30, cancelled his scheduled performance at Clive Davis's star-studded pre-Grammys bash in L.A. and immediately flew to be by her side.


Raymond and Usher welcomed their second son in December.
