Thanks for posting this information. I didn't sleep well last night thinking about Yoram. Our best wishes to the family and we'll be following Yoram's recovery.

Jean and Family-

I am rooting for Yoram and can give hope. in Fall 2001 Nels suffered a massive cerebral hemorrhage while washing his car after work. This is internal but many of the issues of swelling and damage are similar. The prognosis was dire. Nels was in the same 24 hour by 24 hr stages,
so I know what you are going through.

Dr Falik did not have to operate (Nels was in Doctors, not PG). I hope for the same outcome for Yoram because healing did come. Lots of rehab. Dr Leahy of Neuro Associates in Greenblet is the absolute best. We had super nursing care at the DCH ICU and yes, visits were monitored.

Here's to the best for all of you -

I only had the pleasure of meeting Yoram a couple times but knew him well through his work. I forwarded his site to several of our foreign colleagues. He led the way in many directions and has more friends than he knew, or perhaps he did know.
My sincerest condolences,
Amber Soja

I am attaching these, one from Johann Goldammer and the other from Anatoly Sukhinin.

Dear Amber
thanks for sending these news. We are extremely concerned, and we are with Yoram and his family.

Dear All!
It is a tragedy for world forest and wildfire sciences and for me personally, because I know Yoram from his excellent publications and I was met him with kindness in USA. He is a great scientist and we use his algorithm of small fire detecting in our Russian space fire monitoring practice from NASA receiving station installation year (1994) till today. I am and my remote sensing team - we hope that Yoram will get well, will recover and we wish to him a strong Siberian health! We try to support his family in our mind.
Sincerely, Anatoly Sukhinin.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Yoram and his family. In this time of sorrow it is a consoling feeling to think of what a wonderfully fulfilling life Yoram lead. It would be honorable to not discuss how he passed but rather how he lived...

As a biker who works at the nearby Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, I offer my condolences. I was struck by a truck on July 4 a few years ago and knocked unconscious.

When I woke up on the road, I had no memory of anything just before impact. I felt no pain and remembered none.

Although observers would have seen the truck hit me and my front bike wheel fly in the air and my body rolling down the highway, I was unconscious the whole time. Had I not woken up again, what would have seemed a painful death was not painful at all.

Although the truck didn't make contact with my body, only my bike, and Yoram's case is different, I offer that as some possible solace.

In any case as a fellow biker and someone who has been hit, I can empathize enough to offer my condolences to the family and friends of someone I may never have met.
