Yeah, with that many spokes it should be ok. It'll be out of true but probably still rideable. Just go easy on it until you get the new spoke, I don't think you'll do any more damage.

The real problem is that the cause of broken spokes is usually not enough tension. If your wheel was never properly tensioned you may find yourself breaking more and more spokes until you've just about replaced all of them.
