If the pump is leaking you could use some power steering stop leak and it might slow down the leak. I would bring a couple of containers of fluid along with me on the drive to the dealer and top up the fluid as needed along the way. Let the dealer know that you have added stop leak so they can flush the system after they repair the leak.

Let me know if you need anything else.
