I know hun, I think you are doing a fantastic job. It must be awful to see her struggle so much poor little thing.
Hopefully the boots will really help - they definitely helped Isaac loads. Just to warn you though, they are quite rigid, so the first couple of weeks aren't great. Just persevere and keep her in them whenever she is awake and moving!! Once they get used to them, in my experience the progress is amazing.
Hope it goes OK next week. After the measure it takes about 6 weeks to actually get the boots. Push them as much as you can - I managed to get 1 pair in just under 2 weeks once because I'd had to wait ages for appt and he'd grown out of previous pair, so they CAN do it faster if you push!!
