""But I''m too young for a partial knee replacement!"" thought Kimberly Delvecchio, a 39-year-old married mom with two young sons, when she heard her doctor''s diagnosis of a re-injured torn meniscus. She originally hurt her knee while exercising, but a reconstructive scope in 2016 only lasted so long until the pain became unbearable again. When Kimberly didn''t have enough paid-time off to cover surgery and post-op recovery time needed, her #GeisingerFamily banded together to donate nine weeks worth of vacation time and provided her family with dinners for a week. ""I cannot tell you how much my family and I appreciated this. Geisinger truly does care for the whole patient - their physical and emotional needs, family included."" #GeisingerStories

Earlier today, Alex Rymar met with Dr. Mark Seeley, pediatric orthopedic surgeon, to review his X-Ray. A few weeks ago, the 14-year-old toppled onto another player during a basketball game, fracturing his radius, one of two bones found in your forearm. Dr. Seeley delivered some good news -- the cast could come off! #WednesdayWisdom - the radius is on the ''thumb side'' and the ulna is on the ''pinky finger side.'' #TheMoreYouKnow
