Martha Stewart, Francesca

File this under "not good things."

Martha Stewart needed a plastic surgeon Tuesday after her otherwise adorable French bulldog Francesca, apparently startled out of her nap, slammed right into the media icon's face.

"She bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent's face," Stewart blogged today. "I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip. Frannie was as upset as I was and cowered in her bed."

Realizing she had a "pretty serious gash," she took off for the ER at Northern Westchester Hospital, a few miles away from her home in Bedford, N.Y. She had her daughter call ahead to make sure a plastic surgeon was on call and, once there, she documented the experience in pictures.

Stewart was patched up in time to make it to NYC for her 9 a.m. Martha Stewart Show taping, and today's show featured a recount of her trip to the hospital, as well as a crackerjack tutorial on how to organize your kitchen.
