Landcruiser, you can bleed a lot from hemmies, actually. I remember my mother once had one start up and she had blood running down her leg.
I used to work with people with motor problems such as cerebral palsy. Because they have general muscle tightness, their colons also tend to be spastic. They often have terrible problems with constipation, and the two culprits are not enough fiber and not enough water. Keep up the increased fluids, and you might want to try an OTC for the hemmies: Preparation H or the like. The hemmies are probably seeping overnight, and when you go in the morning you expel all the blood that has pooled in your rectum overnight. It will take them some time to heal.
