Sean Kingston in Hospital -- Awake & Alert

6/3/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Kingston still has a breathing tube in his mouth so he can't talk -- but sources close to the singer tell TMZ, he's awake and alert in his hospital bed ... and he's getting better every day.

According to sources, Sean's friends and family have been inundating his hospital room in Miami since the accident -- and the "Beautiful Girls" singer is communicating through nods and sign language.

It's a big improvement since the day of his jet ski crash on Sunday -- when his injuries were so bad, he had to be treated in the trauma ward ... before he was transferred to the ICU.

Last we checked, Kingston was still in critical condition -- and doctors expect to keep him hospitalized for another couple of weeks.

This is good news. Now we can go back to making fun of him because he's a mediocre musician instead of a black guy on a jet ski.

Brain damage which he likely has will affect him for the rest of his life, a few more weeks in the hospital and then he'll probably go to a rehab facility, his life has changed forever and clearly this picture was intended as not real, it amazes me how many stupid Americans there are.

Re:melisa.... it wouldn't cause a gag reflex.... probably he has a collapsed lung.... at first when you have a breathing tube in they do induce a coma... but slowly they take you out of the induced coma to make sure you can breath on your own. you usually fight with the tube... but you dont gag... after a bit of time with the breathing tube and being awake(not completely btw still pretty heavily drugged) they will pull it out... a breathing tube is VERY uncomfortable.. I've had one!

Haha LOL I thought the same thing. Like he would really be posing with a thumbs up and big smile while in the ICU with a tube down his throat!!!

Hey where is the tube? Oh he must have taken it out for this picture lol.

Anyways I hope he gets better soon and learns from this that he isnt untouchable and needs to be more carefull in life.

Not quite sure why you are going on about it being a trauma ward meaning that is incredibly serious - anyone with a broken bone who requires an overnight stay would be on a trauma ward.

All you people commenting on the photo are stupid.
It's suppose to be photo shopped, it's a joke.
It's not like they were going to try SO hard to make it look like it's really him.
SH-T, YOU PEOPLE ARE IDIOTS.
