Posible Appendicitis

My 8 year old daughter had blood on the toliet paper after she had a bowel movement earlier. She also has a bulge in her stomach around her belly button and is having some lower abdominal pain. Could she have an appendicitis?

Possibly, though appendicitis doesn't make blood on the toilet paper.  If I was her mother I'd be more inclined to wonder if she has an impacted bowel.  Take her in to the pediatrician tomorrow and get her in for a diagnosis.
