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!"

When President-elect Barack Obama urged Americans to embrace of a new spirit of community service, Usher took that message to heart.
The pop star pumped up grade-schoolers and other volunteers with handshakes, jokes and words of praise as they repainted walls and built two libraries at Simon Elementary School in southeast D.C. – an area with a high dropout rate – on the afternoon of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
During a feed to Oprah Winfrey's live show from the Kennedy Center Opera House, the singer talked up the need for volunteerism – even working in a reference to Aristotle – before cuing the kids to yell, "Go serve!" to her audience.

Usher is going to be a father for the second time, PEOPLE has learned.
The R&B star and his wife Tameka Foster are expecting their second child together, a source close to the singer confirms.
The couple welcomed their first child, Usher Raymond V, in November 2007. Since then, Usher, 29, has spoken publicly about how much he loves being a dad. "I'm so proud to be a father by the time I'm 30," he told PEOPLE last month. "I'd hate to be 80 years old and not be able to run with my kids. I need to still be able to do flips when they're in high school!
Usher also told Essence in a July interview that his son, nicknamed Cinco, is an "extension of his union" with Foster, whom he married in August 2007.
