stolen credit card affect on mortgage app

We were days away from making offer on a home after 7 months of successfully repairing my credit. Someone got a hold of my credit card # and maxed it up to it's $1,000 limit. After assurance from CC company (applied bank) that we would be reimbursed for all fraudulent charges I went ahead and paid it down to 9% as the reporting date is 10/2.

My question is now that I'm being issued a new card (CC Company used term new account) will that effect my average age of credit? Will it appear as a new account?  will my credit report show the stolen account as closed? I asked the credit card CSR these questions but could tell she didnt understand what I was asking her.
