On Friday, however, the cancer-stricken former Dance Moms star, 51, shared a photo of herself reclining way back in her wheelchair with her face aimed straight at the sun.

Miller wrote as a caption about the searing heat in Los Angeles on July 6, "It's Lit in LA! I have everything I need! Well almost, hey there @tiffanyhaddish where's your Pool Boy? #abbyleemiller #dancemoms #abbylee #aldc #aldcla #spinesurgery."

Although Miller expressed her usual bravado on Instagram, she appeared thin and weak in the wheelchair, wearing a pink tee shirt, black pants, and gray socks.

As Radar has reported, it's not the first time the sun worshipper has ventured outside the hospital to tan.

On June 2, Miller posted a photo on Instagram of herself with her head tilted directly at the sunny sky outside her hospital with her eyes closed.

She captioned the shot, "Going outside to feel the sun on my face was wonderful!!!Kids, never take anything in this world for granted! It can all change so suddenly! The Brilliant Dr. B cleared me for sunning this afternoon! Woo Hoo! Thank you sir! #abbylee #dancemoms #aldcla #ALDC."

The day before, on June 1, Miller had shared with fans a throwback photo on Instagram of herself standing by a pool in happier times.
