Can you please tell more details about the problem you have?  I;ve
read this description several times, and couldn't figure out why are
you having problems.

For example, why can't you run your function from the
post-command-hook directly?  If you want it to run after all the hook
functions finished, you can use the APPEND argument to add-hook,

Or if the above somehow doesn't work, what about pre-command-hook?

And those are just 2 random thoughts that went through my head while I
was reading your request.
