Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson's kidney transplant was a success and he was already feeling well enough to check his emails just hours after the surgery, doctors said Thursday.

The 57-year-old Johnson will likely be released from the hospital this weekend, the doctors said at a news conference at Rush University Medical Center. His 25-year-old son, Daniel Johnson, who donated the kidney, was doing so well that he would likely be allowed to go home later Thursday, they said, reports the Associated Press.

"The superintendent looks really good, he's awake, he's sitting up (and) he's probably by now sitting in a chair," said Dr. Edward Hollinger, Jr., who took part in the transplant surgery at Rush University Medical Center. "We are very pleased with the function of the kidney."
