Day 8 after tonsils out- bleeding but not heavy.

Hey guys!

This morning, I woke up with what I thought was a mouthful of spit as usual. So, as normal, I went to spit and instead of spit it was all blood. Well that scared me enough so I spat a few times, found my glasses, and ran to wake my dad up. Well we both didn't know what was going on and he started to get dressed to take me to the ER, but I told him to call my doctor first. Well then I go into the bathroom and spit a few times, the blood is just pouring out (don't mean to be so graphic), and finally it eases up. Well, then my dad comes in and tells me the doctor said if it keeps on bleeding than to come and see him. Luckily, as i spat, I noticed that the bleeding was actually alot less than I had thought. I think it gathered in my mouth while I was sleeping, so I miss took it as heavy bleeding.

I personally can't wait for this all to be over, but could someone tell me why I'm bleeding? Is there a risk? It kinda reallly scared me and I only got around 4 hours of sleep because of it. Thank you all in advance!
