Melissa GilbertDuring Monday night's episode of Dancing with the Stars, contestant Melissa Gilbert, 47, was injured mid-performance, and was rushed to the hospital instantly. The latest update on the star's condition is that the actress has left the hospital and is resuming with "gentle rehearsal," (as she stated on her Twitter, Wednesday). Gilbert was in the middle of a routine with professional dance partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy when she suffered a concussion and a case of whiplash.

Gilbert is in fine spirits after the ordeal. The former Little House on the Prairie star is "very happy to be back on campus rehearsing." Clearly, her farm-bred youth in Walnut Grove has toughened her up to take on any challenge. Considering her spirits, it doesn't look like this setback will slow her down on the dance floor. Keep on truckin', Batgirl.
