Perhaps you are looking for an interrupt handler rather than a
(Python) exception handler.  (When interrupt handlers resume,
execution continues with the next instruction.)  Such are hardware
specific and best written in assembler or machine-specific C.  Whether
you could write an interrupt handler that usefully interacts with a
running Python program via the Python-C API is beyond  my knowledge.
