Well, Thursday night I drained the battery down again. This time I put the headlights on and listened to the radio while I was doing some stuff in the garage. I took the voltage down to the high 10V range and then stuck it on the charger overnight.

It is now Saturday morning and I just went out to check on the car. It is about 10F warmer than it was last time I checked the battery, but it is now at a solid 12.3V. So, it appears things are improving! I'll probably cycle it deep one or two more times this weekend to see if it helps anymore.
