When you go in front of the judge make sure you have plenty of documentation showing that you were in the ER, and that's why you couldn't make it to the program. Also, if you are now enrolled in the program be sure to bring that documentation with you to show the judge as well. Your probation officer is going to make it sound like you were just blowing it off so it is very important to have everything documented so you can show the judge that you were taking everything seriously, but an unfortunate set of medical circumstances stood on your way.
