Sorry to hear about your health challenges. Our Prayers and Thoughts are out there for you.
To answer your question, the bike market is a little different these days from a couple of years ago, but in my opinion....this is what I would pass on. (By the way, I have been shopping for a Wee for my son for about 6 months and feel I have a good handle on the market.)
In today's market, a seller should feel good about getting Wholesale value, plus 50% of the original cost of the farkles. The HUGE plus to your bike is the 4 years left on the warranty.
In my opinion, I would think your bike could probably sell for about $6k-$6.5k.
Just for comparison....there is a guy in Chicago that has a 'mint' 2006 DL1000 (about 5k miles) with about $1,000 of farkles......and he has been trying to sell the bike for $5,800 for about 3 months.
The Fall/Winter months are not the time to have to sell a bike, especially in today's economy. If you can wait, you would probably get another $500 in March/April 2009.
