An axle seal leak especially if its a minor leak can be monitored for about a month or so, as long as the gear oil isn't affecting the brake system. If any grease/oil gets on the brake pads the oils can contaminate them and cause the vehicle not to stop properly. A major precaution to insure you can hold off on the repair is to have someone be sure the fluid isn't over full in the rear end housing, over filling will cause the seals to leak, if it is over filled have it drained down slightly with a syphon pump.
Have the axle bearings checked for wear on both sides as well.

2006chevy trail blazerls 4wd has trans leak around left front tire


If it is by the tire and thick like grease, replace the CV axle. If it is closer to the engine replace the seal in the differential(dealer item). If it is the seal, replace it soon and fill with the right fluid. Replacing the differential is costly(for a junkyard part) and time consuming. Plus there is a chance that other parts will break during the removal process.

Rear left wheel bearing is squeaking


Replacing a bearing requires pulling the axle so the old bearing can be forced off with a hydraulic ram and the new bearing installed. As with front bearings, the oil seals or O-rings must also be replaced so oil from the differential doesn't leak onto the rear brake linings. Be sure to check the oil level in the differential if the old seals have been leaking, and top off the level if low with the recommended gear oil. I provided you a link for this issue.

Fluid leak from left rear axle housing


This is caused by a leaking rear axle seal you will need to pull the left rear axle out and change the seal and check for a worn axle bearing, this requires the removal of the differential cover, pin and center block or posi spring and clutch pack (if so equipped) and spider gears and then the "C" clip that retains the axle into the gear carrier, u will need a tube of silicone to reseal the cover and a axle seal installer tool and about 2 hours of your time
