Mariska Hargitay must be feeling better – although she was in the hospital recently for a pneumothorax (partially collapsed lung), the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star has returned to the set of her hit show, reports E! News.


The 45-year-old actress suffered the lung injury while the show was on hiatus, and filming was delayed last week to prevent the star from missing an episode.


Mariska also missed out on the Golden Globes and SAG Awards during her illness. She was nominated for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series but didn’t receive either award.


Good health is the best reward for now, right?
