Beaten Cedar Rapids police officer's condition improves

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - Cedar Rapids Police Officer Tim Davis is making good progress in St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids after being beaten while responding to a robbery March 29th.

Davis' wife Stephanie says, "Tim is doing very well, he can get in and out of his wheel chair by himself, walk with very little assistance and talk very softly."

She says Officer Davis has 3-4 hours of therapy a day, six days a week and each day he improves.

"They have not yet stated how long we will be here but Tim is impressing everyone he meets. Visitors are still limited to family and close friends and the best times to visit are after 6 on week days and afternoon on weekends. During meal times is difficult because Tim needs to concentrate on eating and we have been spending time with the boys for dinner."

The Davis family wishes to thank everyone that has organized, volunteered or attended a benefit for Tim.

"He is slowly becoming aware of what is going on and can't believe the support," Stephanie Davis said.

Police organizations have arranged a benefit Monday night at the Texas Roadhouse in Coralville. Ten percent of the nights proceeds will be donated to Officer Tim Davis' family. This will run from 4:00 - 11:00 PM.
