Hang in there Jim! Progress is progress. It's a hill we all have to climb if we want to play in the key of C. I am working on multiple string tremolo on mandolin, and it's back to baby steps for me as well. It's humbling, but I actually enjoy being back to basics again.

I stayed up all night to see where the sun went. Then it dawned on me.

I at times raise the neck of the guitar up so my fingers will be at a good position to press all the strings, this woks for me it may not for you . One of My old instructors had a hand damaged in a wreck and he has to have his neck up a bunch but he can play like there is no tomorrow . It might be worth a try . I know it looks different but we want to play and that is the main item . it helps me with the "C" chord and the F chord. Happy picking and here's to having fun along the way
It's not as hot as it is was it! Sometimes making no sense at all makes sense .

From your picture it looks like you rest your guitar on your left knee like a classical player. That makes it pretty easy to raise the guitar neck.
