Usher and Tameka Foster's oldest son, Usher V, is on the mend after a horrifying pool accident earlier this week and Foster couldn't be happier about his recovery.
Foster posted a pic of herself cradling her little boy in the hospital on Thursday.
"My favorite 5-year-old. What a blessing!" she wrote. "I have always loved and appreciated my sons but tragedies and close calls make this even more evident."
She also revealed earlier in the day that Cinco was "resting well" and that they'd "had a SpongeBob marathon ALLL night," because "he wouldn't go to sleep!"

Two days after a scary pool accident sent Usher's oldest son, Usher V, to the hospital, the 5-year-old is doing "okay," according to his mother, Tameka Foster. But the drama may not be over yet.
Foster has requested an emergency child-custody hearing to regain primary custody of the couple's two children, Usher V and Naviyd, 4, reports TMZ.
"Now that it's sunk in, she is livid," says a source close to Foster. "Usher has custody and won't let Tameka have the kids, even when he's out of town. She feels like the kids are being raised by his family or by nannies, when they should be with their mother."

When rumors began circulating last May that Simon Cowell was in a relationship with his friend's wife, Lauren Silverman, the TV host's lawyer responded with a strong denial.
"Any implication or statement that my client is engaged in adultery and has allegedly broken up the marriage of Ms. Silverman is not only false but reckless," Martin Singer told the New York Post at the time.

Johnny Depp is finally opening up about his split from his partner of 14 years, Vanessa Paradis, calling the last few years of their relationship "a bit bumpy."
"At times, [it was] certainly unpleasant, but that's the nature of breakups, I guess, especially when there are kiddies involved,” Depp, 50, tells Rolling Stone in its July 4 issue.
But the actor, who has two kids with Paradis – Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11 – says he hasn't stopped caring about Paradis.
"It doesn't stop the fact that you care for that person, and they're the mother of your kids," he says of their split. "You'll always know each other, and you're always gonna be in each other's lives because of those kids. You might as well make the best of it."

And he's off.
The emotional toll of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart's latest breakup became a logistical one Sunday, as the actor was photographed apparently leaving his longtime love's Los Angeles home with a pickup truck full of his belongings.
His two dogs rode shotgun, as an expressionless Pattinson, 27, in a red cap, sunglasses and increasingly scruffy beard, drove away from Stewart's Los Feliz house.

There have been recent signs of trouble in paradise for newly-split couple, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
The exes, who were inseparable just weeks ago, grew distant since Pattinson returned from New York to Los Angeles on May 8.
"They again went from spending every second together, to spending more time apart at their separate houses," a source tells PEOPLE. "Kristen has been in a terrible mood, and it was obvious that things were not great with Rob."
