How to manage until residential

I am new to this and trying to figure out how to manage. My daughter is 12 and has anorexia. Her ED therapist has recommended residential treatment, as my daughter is really struggling. It seems we may be on a 4 to 6 week wait to get her into a center, and I am terrified we won't be able to manage keeping her going that long on a basic survival kind-of basis. Has anyone else had to wait for residential for a long period of time? How did you do it? I feel like her rapid physical deterioration cannot be managed for too long.
