Vince Mazzie’s Birthday

Today is August 5, 2020.  I was born 57 years ago today to amazing parents Helen and Cosimo Mazzie.  Yes with a name of Cosimo I am Italian.

Today’s birthday is especially special since I never thought I would see my next birthday since I almost died of a stroke and heart attack on September 13, 2019.

I feel very blessed and grateful to God and all my friends.

I took the picture above today and I don’t think that I look to bad for my age and all I went through.  Although my daughter Riley thinks i have aged 10 years since September 2019.  LOL..

Today I spent my birthday getting my 2016 Mazda CX3 fixed at the dealer.  Somehow the bottom passenger molding fell off.  That was costly $650 dollars.  Oh well at least my car looks good again. I treat my car like my baby.

I then came home and spent a few hours in the pool.  Tomorrow back to work for short rest of the week.

I checked out my favorite truck today to the Chevy Colorado. It was almost 40K.  One day I will get one of them.  Its on my bucket list. 🙂

Well that is about it.  Also wanted to note my weight is 145 pounds and that is the thinnest.that I have ever been .  I have been eating all veggies and no red meat.

Well going to see what is up on Facebook and maybe instagram.

Feel free to hit me up on either.

My Stroke Symptoms The Night Before

It was September 12, 2019 when I woke up and started my day like any normal day.  I took our dog Izzy out to do her business and came in to get ready for work.

I went in to my office at First Data Merchant Services and worked as I normally would.  I went for a walk around the building and and felt pretty good all day.

When it was time to go home once I got home I realized that I forgot my cell phone at my desk.  I figured I would go back in later to pick it up.

After dinner I decided to go back in and drove about a mile and thought that my vision was kind of blurry so I turned around and thought I will just pick it up tomorrow.

I had no head aches but sometimes my eye site gets blurry depending on my blood sugar level.  I have type 2 diabetes.

As the night progressed it was time to go to sleep.  I sleep in a separate room from my wife since I snore and use a CPAP and she sleeps with the television on and I like it as quiet as I can have it be.

At 3:30 am I woke up on September 13, 2019 and was paralyzed with a stroke.  My next blog post will go into detail.

Thanks for reading,
