can monit act differently after X failed attempts?

  I'm relatively new to monit.  I have it setup to monitor a cellular pppd
process and reset the cell module's USB port by calling a bash script if the
process is not running.  I have found that in some cases resetting the USB
port still does not resolve my issue and a full reboot is required.  
  Is it possible for monit to run a different script if X consecutive
failures occur?
  I could write bash scripts around monit, so that monit increments a number
in a file and then have a separate bash script check the file regularly and
force a reboot if the number climbs too high, but this felt kludgey, and was
wondering if monit supported this itself.

thanks in advance for your help,
