To quote the livetweeter herself, Laurie Kilmartin has been surrounding her dad with “love and sarcasm.” Mr. Kilmartin was recently admitted to a hospice and only has so much time left to live, because f*ck cancer, or more specifically, f*ck lung cancer. Laurie, a writer for Conan who recently appeared on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast, has been updating her Twitter followers about her stay in the hospice, not because she’s looking for sympathy, but because she’d probably go crazy if she couldn’t make dick jokes.

Here’s a sample of some of her tweets:
