Just one day after a teacher had surgery to remove a brain tumor, she hopped on Facebook Live to read her elementary school students a bedtime story.

K.D. Meucci is a 4th grade teacher at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. A few years ago she stared a Facebook page called "Franklin Bedtime Stories" where every Thursday students or a teacher read a story on Facebook Live.

Meucci had surgery to remove the tumor on Wednesday. On Thursday evening, from her intensive care unit hospital bed, she took to Facebook Live to read a bedtime story to her students, like she always does.

"I'm sorry if I look a little weird. I know I look a little weird. I got this black eye going right here because, again, they cut open my head right here to take out my brain tumor," she told her students.

She used Facebook Live to read the book "Mr. Walker Steps Out" and reassured her students that she will be back to school as soon as she can.

"You are my friends. You are an important part of our school community. You are an important part of our world. You are loved," she told them. "I wanted to see you, to see that I'm OK. I look a little funky, but I wanted you to see and know that I'm OK."
