I kind of had the same problem but it was with my own Mom; she means well but ...well...you know...so when I went in the hospital for my colectomy I bought an ipod and downloaded a bunch of music, books and even movies. I became addicted to it while I was there and when I came home; or at least that's what people thought because I always had it on but it was my excuse to keep out the sounds in the hospital and I said it helped me to rest. But it really helped me so that I didn't have to listen to you know who!!!!!
Just an idea if you don't have one. I will definitely keepyou in my prayers.
