Martha Stewart Makes ER Visit After Headbutt From Her Dog

Martha Stewart isn't likely to whisper goodbye to into her dozing dog's ear anytime again soon.

The 69-year-old needed stitches after she startled her dog Francesca while leaning down to say goodbye.

"I planned to get into New York City that night, so I would not be delayed in the morning by the snowfall," Stewart recounts on her website. "I had a 7:00 AM call at the Today Show and a 9:00 AM call for the Martha Show."

"As I leaned down to whisper goodbye to a dozing Francesca, I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent's face."

"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."

"Rushing to a mirror, I realized it was a pretty serious gash. I called Alexis and asked her to call the hospital to get a plastic surgeon to the emergency room. I called the police to ask for a ride to the hospital, forgetting that Carlos, my driver was waiting to drive me into the city."

Stewart got patched up in time to squeeze in a nap and still make it to New York City for the taping of the Martha Stewart Show, which recounted the previous night's mishap.
