Honestly it's probably nothing to worry about, think about the millions of engines in all kinds of things put away for the winter and how few of them receive special treatment when they're re-started in the spring without any major adverse wear. If you want to try and do something though, you could have her pull a fuse so the engine won't start and crank it over until oil pressure builds up. When I store my car I pull the fuel pump fuse and let the engine die so there is no fuel in the rail and then when I want to run the car again I crank it until I have oil pressure, re-insent the fuse and I'm on my way. I'd recommend also pulling something for the ignition too in your case though as you may still have enough fuel in the rail for the car to start briefly otherwise. Make sure your battery is well charged, and go in short bursts (5-10 seconds and then 10 seconds of rest) otherwise you're putting too much strain on the battery, cables, and starter.
