You should be able to be reinstated a second time. It sounds like you have good cause. Perhaps you should consult with an attorney in your area. Best of luck.
Maybe. It depends on the judge and how the judge feels about it. A good attorney that explains the situation to the judge could go a long way to helping you.

I am not nearly as optimistic about your chances as are my colleagues. Primarily because you have taken a year and done nothing. Would be a lot more likely if you had gone back to court and explained the difficulties in stead of apparently waiting until program causes you to return and beg for more mercy.
Your situation reminds me of a segment from the movie "Patton" when the general is asking the padre for good weather. Padre's comment was that it was going to take a pretty thick rug.
You will need not just an attorney but a persuasive one at that.
