So, so, so happy to hear this. Reports indicate that 5-year-old Usher Raymond V—who's spent the last couple of days in the ICU after getting his arm stuck in a pool drain—is making a speedy recovery. Hopefully the custody proceedings, initiated by Usher Sr.'s ex-wife Tameka Foster (whom I totally feel for, by the way), won't be too traumatic for the kid on top of this nearly-dying business. Ugh all around.

Usher's 5-year-old son is showing miraculous signs of improvement after nearly drowning in a pool the other day — in fact, we're told he's already sitting up in bed at the hospital, eating, laughing, and talking to people ... BUT, it may be days before he's released.

Sources close to the family tell us, Usher Raymond V is still in the ICU — where he's being kept in a private area — he's expected to be released in the next couple of days.

According to sources, the boy's mother Tameka — Usher's ex-wife — hasn't left the hospital since the accident.

My best to everyone involved except for the pool drain, which is dead to me. [TMZ]
