My recovery is proceeding.  The worst of it was over relatively quickly.  It's the last twenty percent or so that seems to be slow - It's not really, but it just seems that way.

I do admit that I am spending less time working.  Disruptions like that are always like that.  The projects I do are always pretty intense and when I can't do them as intensely, I tend to lose focus and drift for a while.  Even when I got back home from the hospital, my ability to work the way I wanted to was limited.

But, things are getting back to normal.  They're not quite there yet, but they're a lot closer than they were.  I'm also more cognizant of what led to my hospitalization and I've been spending more time in efforts to prevent future recurrences.  That's a process that's not complete, but it's moving along.

In short, there have been some significant shifts in how I do things, but there aren't really any new things I'm working on.  Still digging through the piles of reading material I've accumulated over the years.  Writing has dwindled a bit - I found it impossible to write anything in the hospital, but it's slowly recovering as well.
