Question I wish I didn't have

Do elderly dogs fall and break their hips like elderly people? My old dog is very unsteady on her feet right now and I'm worried about going to work this week. She's basically been laying around today and is doing better with walking and can stand up and lie down on her own, which she couldn't on Sunday, but she's standing on three legs and very wobbly. She's been to the vet like four times and I understand her situation and she's on the proper meds and all. I've had dogs all my life but I've never had one reach this age (13.5) and I really don't know what to expect. Since I worry the same thing about my father I am kind of on the edge of a conniption fit pretty much all the time these days. What say you, team dog of GT?
