usher-raymond-v-cinco-fifth-birthday-sfta-4*Whew! A lot of folks are SO happy that 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 has a problem with the aunt that was watching him at the time of the accident. She has now filed legal docs seeking primary custody.
