Chapter 26 Summary

Dolarhyde spends the next several years growing up among his grandmother's nursing home patients. During the middle of one night, little Francis has to go to the bathroom, but is afraid to get out of his bed. Francis accidentally wets his bed. When he wakes his grandmother, she takes him upstairs to clean him up and change the sheets on his bed. When all is put right, Francis's grandmother tells him to get her sewing scissors. Mrs. Dolarhyde then takes hold of Francis's penis and tells him if he ever wets his bed again, she will cut it off. Mrs. Dolarhyde then tells him he does not need to be afraid of the dark, he can sit on the toilet like a good little boy. As an adult, Dolarhyde still sits on the toilet in the dark when he needs to urinate at night.
