I built the following code so far:

        SPWeb web = __Context.Web;
        Guid listGuid = new Guid(__Context.ListId);
        SPList myList = web.Lists[listGuid];
        SPListItem myItem = myList.GetItemById(__Context.ItemId);

        if (myItem.FileSystemObjectType == SPFileSystemObjectType.Folder)
            // This item is a folder, need to check if it has an .doc file inside

How do I obtain the collection of items inside myItem?

I think this should work:

SPFolder folder = myItem.File.ParentFolder;
SPFileCollection items = folder.Files;

You may have to use SPQuery and set its ViewAttribute property. query.ViewAttributes = "Scope=\"Recursive\"";
