Will the hospital let me keep my hip after it's replaced?

I realize this is an incredibly weird question. I'm having a total hip replacement, and I would like to keep the bones they take outta me. Is it possible the hospital will let me, or are there laws against this? I live in the U.S.

Replace the motion of my Pop-pop's pocketwatch

So I have my father's father's retirement pocketwatch. My father gave it to me almost twenty years ago and it has never worked. Recently I pulled it out of the china cabinet and tried to fix it myself following some youtube tutorials. Unfortunately I forgot that I am clumsy and bad at not losing small things. Long story slightly longer, I lost/broke a couple pieces. At that point I took it to a jeweler/watchmaker and he could not fix my mistake. Now I'm wondering if I can just replace the entire internal mechanism of the watch while keeping the part that has my Grandpa's name on it. I'm having no luck finding anything online. [more inside]

Need a tshirt replacement

Lands' End used to make what they called a heavyweight shirt. It was 100% cotton, tagless, fabric was a little coarse and it had a very satisfying weight. They also weren't too long and fit my somewhat-short torso well. They don't make it anymore! Do you know the shirts I'm talking about? Have you found a replacement?

How to replace lost phone when I have a new one due?

I think I lost my Verizon phone. I had the same phone for the past 3 years, and I know that I was due for a new one for the past year. I do not have insurance, not that I know of at least. So, how do I go about replacing this phone? I am so confused... Will I have to pay for the new phone? (I am from another country, so I still do not fully understand how the cell phone stuff works here.)

Does it make sense to pay to replace the clutch on a older car?

My 2004 Tiburon GT SE needs a clutch replacement but I can't decide if putting that much money into the car is worth it. How much can I expect to pay a mechanic to perform the work? I'm guessing in the $1K range but I don't know. And if so, does it make sense to put that money into car that's almost 8 years old? I bought it used a few years ago and still owe $5K on it, so dumping it isn't an option. It has only 54K miles and is otherwise in very good condition. How should I proceed?

Pro/con to having a dealership replace a headlight bulb?

My headlight in my 2003 Civic Hybrid went out. Before I knew it my father had purchased a new bulb and attempted to replace it. The report: he had to unplug the battery to reach the headlight apparatus (?!) so now my anti-theft radio will no longer play (because why would anyone want to steal a Honda if the dinky factory-installed radio doesn't work?!). Furthermore the light he got was the wrong kind so my headlight has not even been fixed. So I've looked up the details on resetting the radio and I need to take it to the dealership to get it reset. I am hoping this won't cost anything but, since my light hasn't been replaced, should I just get the headlight bulb replaced there as well? Has anyone bothered getting this done at the dealership or should I just attempt to replace the light myself after I've brought it back from getting the radio fixed?
