The cause of GBS is usually unknown, but it can start with an infection, even one which is subclinical and unnoticed.

It seems a little early to assume she will need a brace for an extended time, because her case seems relatively mild (given her short hospital stay). I think it best at this point to hope for a complete recovery and go into therapy with a positive attitude.
