5-year-old Usher Raymond V is showing signs of improvement!

The little tyke nearly drowned in a pool the other day while trying to retrieve a toy; but now we’re told he’s already sitting up in bed at the hospital, eating, laughing, and talking to people. Still, it may be days before he’s released.

Sources close to the family told TMZ he is still in the ICU, in a private area, and expected to be released in the next couple of days.

Those same sources say that Tameka, the boy’s mother and Usher‘s ex-wife, hasn’t left the hospital since the accident.

Tameka blames Usher for putting their son in an environment that led to the near-drowning accident on Monday.

She also tweeted an update along with the photo above, that reads:

My favorite 5 year old. What a blessing! I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident. URV had an angel named Kile Ishmael and our Lord and true savior to look after him. Words cannot express the relief and how thankful to God I truly am. Thank you Jehovah God, Jesus and Kile😇…also The AV worker that saved my son is my Hero!!! Period.
