According to a source within Tameka Foster-Raymond's camp, the grieving mom will never take her son off a ventilator "as long as there is life in him."

Kile Glover, 11, was critically injured on July 6 when he suffered closed head trauma in a Jet Ski accident on Lake Lanier. Kile is the son of Tameka Foster and local businessman Ryan Glover. Foster is the ex-wife of singer Usher Raymond.

"He's not dead," the source told Sandrarose.com. She said Kile responds to painful stimuli but not tactile stimuli (light touching) -- and that's enough for Tameka to keep Kile on a ventilator which breathes for him.

The source, who spoke to Sandrarose.com anonymously, also disputed reports that Tameka's insurance company would force Tameka to take Kile off the vent. She said Tameka and Ryan's insurance will continue to pay Kile's medical needs until, he either dies (from his brain injuries) or he is transferred to a long-term care facility.

The source said the family continues to pray for more signs of Kile's recovery, though doctors don't give them much hope. "He's alive, and as long as he responds to pain, the family has hope," said the confidential source.

      Thats great news!!! I usually go in on Tamkea but I cant imagine what she is going through. I know she reads the blog so u keep fighting for that baby :pray:

      One night I had a dream--
      I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
      and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
      For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
      one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
      When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
      I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
      I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
      there was only one set of footprints.
      I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
      and saddest times in my life.
      This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
      "Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
      you would walk with me all the way,
      but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
      there is only one set of footprints.
      "I don't understand why in times when I needed you most,
      you should leave me."
      The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child,
      I love you and I would never, never leave you
      during your times of trial and suffering.
      "When you saw only one set of footprints,
      it was then that I carried you."

      Praise the Lord!! I once read in an article by a nurse who suggested to a mother who had her son in a coma to spray a lil of her perfume on a scarf and let her child who was in a coma smell it.. little by little the child started to show signs of life..something about the smell of your mother brings security.. knowing she is there with you. Still Praying for Kile!

    • Smonae80

      I pray that he pulls through, no parent should have to worry about their child living to see another day.

      Remembers when my son was on life support and Doctors, Nurses, Family and mother told me to stop. To take him off. Medical professionals said that he would never walk or talk and he would not have any quality of life. That was 15 1/2 year ago. He fine Walking, Talking, Runnning That's my Mircale Baby. Thank YOU JESUS!

      My grandmother use to tell me as a child: Don't ever put a limit on what the good Lord can do. NEVER. If you think otherwise, you might as well not believe at all.

      Can this source tell TMZ to get their lies straight and to stop making up stories attempting to put both parties in a bad light just for hits? I pray for Kile's full recovery and a lawsuit on reckless journalism.

      now ALL OF A SUDDEN all you haters wanna pray for Kile, You ALL hated on Tameka endlessly, and at any chance you could get.

      the world is weird, only love you when you're down and out-- then all you sinners turn into saints. and wanna pray for tameka.

      please.

      now everyone (on other sites) is rushing to say tameka is in denial and should take him off of life support. knowing full well you would not do so if it were YOUR child in the same position. a bunch of hypocrites.

    • http://twitter.com/jetsetdeeva DeevaC

      Kimberly my feelings towards how Tameka sometimes acts does not negate the fact that as a human being with loved ones I can sympathize with her. I will always pray and wish the best for a person regardless. Anyone who wouldn't pray and send well wishes to someone in her position because they didn't like them is mentally disturbed and pathetic.

      @ QbanVee: even though a patient may be declared brain dead, parts of the brain is still alive until all brain functions cease. Sometimes man's machines are inadequate to measure all levels of life.

    • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

      @ IamK_Antoinette, yes. The brain may be dying but it is not completely dead if there are still bodily functions such as urinating, breathing, etc.

      @ Usual Prime Suspect: that's a heartwarming story of perseverance! :)

      _____________
      Welcome to SR Kimberly but that was some dumb azz shyt. Yes we drag Tameka for her tactics and immaturity. However, most of us are mothers and have sympathy for her because her child is suffering. Any compassionate person would stop taking shots and :pray: for that child :rolleyes:

      My feelings about her and Usher showing their azz has not changed but I am tactful and respectful. This is bigger than the BS between her Ursh. A child’s life is at risk. Obviously u didn’t read the previous post because no one said that she needs to take that child off support. So u are talking to the wrong crowd.

    • Daisy

      I was always on Tameka's side not everybody was anti Meka BUT that's neither here nor there. I am praying for Kile and his parents and family. Praying Gods will be done and that he continues to comforts all parties.

      Shut the hellup yo

      We do what the public does! We comment on everyday things, we give our opinions (positive&negative)

      BUT a lot of us on here are mothers! And as soon as we heard/read this we gave her, and their whole family some compassion, some prayers, some good thoughts that we hope will help them get through this tough time.

      You can’t/won’t change who we are (i.e. how we think) :no: Ain't nothing "ALL OF A SUDDEN" about how we don't wish this pain on our worst enemy. Grow ya ass up :coffee:

      We will continue to pray for Kile. We are not giving up on him. I serve a God that heals! I love Kile, Tameka and Ryan. They have an awesome support system of family and friends that hold fast to Kile's complete healing.

    • Ms. Everything

      Kimberly if you knew so much about what ALL the posters on this site do or say you'd know that there are more than a few on here (including myself) who have never had a bad word to say about her and even for those who have dragged her from here to kingdom come and back again, only the most despicable, worthless, just plain trifling would speak bad about or not even offer up a prayer for a mother going through what she's going through. It shouldn't be so hard to understand that :rolleyes:

      but ignoring the ignorant (now isn't the time or place for that) thank you JESUS!! I've been praying, will continue praying and continue to have faith that this baby will make it. To his parents: stay strong and keep praying. No matter what the dr's say don't count what God can and will do out
