You should be just fine, until your visit. The visit should be in 1-2 weeks.  Be sure the orthodontist or the technician knows it is in there and removes it at the appointment.  It will still function as long as it is in between the teeth.

Yes, it is still good.
Spacers usually will be left in place for about 1- 2 weeks before they are removed for the procedure planned at your next appointment. If they are left longer than 1-2 weeks they may pop or just fall off as small spaces are created where the spacers are.
