your husband absolutely needs to see a physician, in particular a gastro.  there can be blood in the stool for lots of benign reasons, but it also can be due to a more serious medical reason.  you can't ignore the possibility of a colon tumor, even if it's the LEAST likely reason.  i always feel like i have to give everyone a warning re blood in stools:  we have a family friend who ignored such warning signs for a long time, and he's lucky to be alive.  he now has a colostomy bag, which possibly could have been avoided had he consulted a doctor earlier.  it's most likely something less serious, but please get your husband to a doctor.

Your husband absolutely needs to be seen by a doctor -- now, if he hasn't already.  If needed, go to the ER.  This is not something to wait on, and is certainly not an issue to ignore.  Drag him, kicking and screaming, if you have to.

It could just be a hemorrhoid, but it could also be very serious.
