Both my sister's kidneys are working,
the one she still has and the one she gave her husband.
Thank you, thank you, thank you --
for the surgeons' capable hands and dedication,
for all the nurses, aides, and chaplains,
the health insurers and the administrators,
the secretaries, janitors, regulators, cooks,
launderers, and instrument sterilizers.
Thank you, Lord!
