Fly with a broken foot and a toddler?

My wife is in the UK, with our nearly 2-year-old son, I'm in Switzerland, where we live. Today she fell and hurt her foot, and it's possibly broken: she's going to have it checked out and possibly have a cast put on tomorrow. Her flight back is on Saturday morning. Is that a good idea?

A broken bone in the foot would ordinarily not be a reason not to fly (if the cast is split), but is it sensible/reasonable to fly with that *plus* a wriggly nearly 2-year-old? (We didn't book a seat for him, so he's riding with mummy). And, assuming it isn't reasonable, might our travel insurance company be willing/able to do anything about it? I'm feeling rather helpless over here, and any advice from the hivemind would greatly ease my furrowed brow
