Don't worry about it. Just charge the battery, do a visual check of the fluids and tire pressure, then do a normal cold start, which is just turn the key. I've seen engines come apart that have been sitting for years and there was still lots of oil in the bearings and valvegear - more than enough to provide the normal boundary lubrication before oil pressure builds up enough to feed oil to the bearings. As the engine starts up monitor the oil pressure gage and figure maybe two to three seconds before it rises.
Drive the car enough to thoroughly warm up, then change the oil and filter.
