A devoted Pennsylvania teacher read a bedtime story to her students on Facebook Live just one day after she had brain surgery.

KD Meucci, 39, underwent a procedure to remove a brain tumor on Oct. 13, but she refused to miss her weekly story time with her students at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Bethel Park.

The next evening, she hosted a Facebook Live for her fourth-graders and read a library book from her hospital bed in the intensive care unit, WTAE TV reported.

Years ago, Meucci created Franklin Bedtime Stories – a closed Facebook group – as a place for teachers and students to read live every Thursday at 8 p.m.

“Of course I packed a book,” she told her students during her post-surgery lecture. “I knew I’d be here Thursday night, so I grabbed a book from the library.”

The teacher chose to let Mr. Walker Steps Out by Lisa Graff, which is about a human-shaped figure who lives in a traffic light house and tells people when they can safely cross the street.

Meucci used the story to reassure her students that she would return to her class as soon as possible.

“The main thing was that I wanted to see you, [for you] to see I’m okay. I look a little funky, but I wanted you to see it and know I’m okay,” she said.

“I want you to know that I love you and that I miss you, and I know you’ll have a great day tomorrow, strong and brave, and I’m proud of you, Ben Franklin, so have a good night.” ‘

Meucci found out a week before surgery that she had a brain tumor, which she was told was “probably benign.”

She told WTAE-TV that her doctors believe they have removed all the tumors and she is still recovering.
