Abby Lee Miller continues to battle cancer as she recovers from her latest emergency surgery. Life in the hospital is ... not fun.
So who better to stop by to cheer her up than some Dance Moms alums?
There were, of course, pictures. Take a look!
Maesi Caes took to Instagram to share a photo from her visit with Abby Lee Miller.
She doesn't specify why she needed to wear a face mask, but we suspect that it may have been a precaution to keep her from infecting Miller, who is probably immunocompromised.
"HERO," Maesi writes, defining the word as: "'An ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles'"
From a certain point of view, Maesi suggests, this definition could apply to her former dance teacher.
"...Miss Abby," Maesi continues. "Thank you for being my hero."
Maesi wasn't the only one who showed up to lend some moral support.
"A very glum afternoon quickly turned BRIGHT," Elliana Walmsley wrote on Instagram.
"Seeing the BEAUTIFUL @therealabbylee!" her caption continued.
Elliana gushed: "Loved chatting with her about old times, new times, and future times!!!!"
"A visit wouldn’t be complete without getting a private lesson! Feet!" she jokes. "Let’s show Miss Abby SOME LOVE by commenting her fav emojis."
Abby Lee Miller herself shared an image of her with both girls, who were each wearing face masks.
"I guess it doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing," Miller writes in the caption.
"The kids," she says. "Always migrate right toward me!"
She then makes a joke.
Miller suggests: "I guess I’m more fun than their moms!"
Back in May, Abby Lee Miller sported a wig while receiving a visit from another Dance Moms alum, JoJo Siwa.
These days, JoJo is busy feuding with Danielle Bregoli. But in May, she made time for a visit.
Keeping to her usual, uber-positive brand, JoJo wrote: "Got to see my favorite today!"
"Abby you have changed my life for forever," JoJo gushed. "I am so thankful for everything you have done for me.
JoJo wrote that Miller taught her "Table manners, how to survive in a plastic bubble, and more!"
"Thank you for letting us come by and visit you today!" JoJo wrote. "I love you. FOREVER."
Millerhas also been visited by her godchild, Maddie Pietrusinski.
All of these visits are wonderful.
Is there a risk that Miller could be exposed to some sort of outside germs or infection? Unfortunately, yes.
But it seems that her doctors feel that the brightening of her mood brought on by these visits is worth it.
Abby Lee Miller underwent emergency spinal surgery when she was suddenly experiencing paralysis.
Sadly, it was worse than an infection. Miller was diagnosed with cancer. Specifically, Burkitt lymphoma.
Though reports claimt hat Miller is preparting for the worst, the good news is that the recovery rate for this cancer is high, and that it responds quickly to treatment.
Fans hold out hope that Miller will make a full recovery, and soon.
It looks like she's expected to make it just fine -- because Dance Moms is holding auditions for its next season, and Miller herself is set to star.
