My stools are a dark yellow, like liquid, and there are parts that float.

Got it thanks

Looks like you have a bacterial colitis infection with salmonella there

I'd treat you with a combination of Cipro and metronidazole for that

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
