The pensioner has been fighting for his life since being knocked down as he crossed London Road in Rainham after attending a dinner.
Mr Davis, 85, suffered serious injuries, including nine broken ribs, fractured vertebrae, bleeding on his brain and severe internal bruising when he was hit at 11.20pm on Friday, April 11.
The hunt for the driver of a small silver car continues.
Mr Davis was first discharged from hospital only to be readmitted due to ongoing problems. Now he is finally back at the home he shares with wife Sheila in Lincoln.
"If my grandfather had not been so fit for his age, I don’t think he would have survived..." - granddaughter Nicola Sawhney
His granddaughter, Nicole Sawhney, kept a bedside vigil for much of the time, visiting him every day when he was at King's College Hospital in London. After his relapse he was transferred to a hospital in Sheffield, two hours away.
Miss Sawhney, 31, said: "My mother and I had to book into a hotel in Sheffield for a week until he came out."
Mr Davis was a keen cyclist. At the time of the accident he was making his way back to the Premier Inn hotel in Maidstone Road, Rainham, following the annual dinner of the Polhill Cycling Club in Upchurch, which he founded.
His family want justice for him and remain determined to find the driver responsible.
Miss Sawhney said: "If my grandfather had not been so fit for his age, I don't think he would have survived. He's got a long way to go and probably months of rehab. Who knows if he will ever be the same again?"
Police are continuing to appeal for witnesses. Officers are particularly keen to speak to anyone who may have seen a small silver hatchback car on the night of the collision.
