1.  Epigastric pain with vomiting and one episode of small amount of hematemesis with a history of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug use.  Rule out peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, esophagitis, and hepatitis.  The patient at this time needs to have an EGD to rule out acid peptic disease.  The procedure of EGD, including the risks of perforation, bleeding, infection, allergy, and hypotension secondary to sedation were explained to her in detail, and she was willing to have the procedure.  The patient will be kept n.p.o. now, and we will have the EGD today.  She is going to be started on oral feeding after the EGD is done on her.  Continue Protonix at this time.  Also, check the liver function tests.  Discontinue nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.  Further recommendations after EGD.
2.  History of black stools at home.  The patient's stools have been sent for guaiac.  In case there is no pathology seen in the upper GI tract and stools are positive for guaiac, she will require a colonoscopy as well.
