It could be back in the index in a matter of a few days depending on the site's PageRank and other factors. But again, who knows? The way the results are showing now you may never get back into the top of the results.

It is also possible that you are a victim of update Florida. There has been a couple of thousand posts over the last week about sites completly disappearing for there main keywords.
Check through site search for Florida update. It is a coincidence that the update happened at the same time your domain was expired. There are many other that are experiencing the same thing you are and their domains did not expire.

I assume you renewed just few days after expiration, in which case you should get your rankings back once you put your content and wait about a month. However, if your domain was expired and released after the 30-60 day redemption period and then you re-registered it, then chances are you will loose your PR permantly, unless you email Google and tell them what happened.
