My sister, age 84 has had Guillain Barre Syndrome since 56. She is walking three times a week, three times around a mall. The real problem she has had since, is the bottom of her feet - the skin is thin. She does not wear heals, has not, usually sneakers or a low show with a built in arch (doctor perscribed). Takes no medicine (high blood pressure - don't we all) Other then that - that's it. She was on cordizone type medicine while she was acutely sick (about one year to recover - however). Her husband was adamant about her getting up to walk because she was paralyzed - he rubbed her legs and made her sit on the edge of the bed and exercise those legs. Symptons were tingling, but she fell a few times. The rest of her body is fine. She is very thankful for the years she has had. Wanted you to know to keep your chin up. And get her up. exercise your daughters legs, arms, hands, fingers etc. Her diet is good - she cooks her own meals most of the time. Eats fresh vegetables, good meat, chicken, fish. If that has to do with her survival all these years, I recommend it. Hope, prayers, lots of good thoughts are with you both.
