Francisco Felix, left, who still wears his hospital tags on his wrist as he comforts his wife Flor Felix, was prepped to get a new lifesaving liver at a Phoenix hospital today, returned home a couple hours later without the surgery, shown at his home Tuesday, Nov. 16, 2010, in Laveen, Ariz. The 32-year-old Phoenix resident is one of dozens of Arizona patients who need liver transplants but can't get them because of moneysaving budget cuts to the state's Medicaid system. The new cuts mean patients who get medical coverage from the state's Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System, or AHCCCS, will not get liver transplants if they have Hepatitis C. less
