There is a chance you could be doing really well at the end of the year. I know that when I had my little spate with aenmia, that once I started taking iron, I started running better. YOu've got plenty of time to recover. Just don't expect to much of yourself before that recovery process is finished.
Also, I forgot to ask/mention, that you don't need to just run to train for a marathon. One of my friends qualified for Boston after taking two months off to let a torn ligament heal. She couldn't run at all, or even walk during this time. So she swam, did some pool running and rode her bike. But above all, devote your energy to getting healthy. Then, who knows.
Best of luck,
