My advice would be put oil in it and let it run a bit then drain it out and check for metal shavings. If lots then you may want teardown the engine. If no shavings then drain the oil again and run as normal. It's either going to break or its not. The only other thing I would do is get a magnetic drain plug, and safty wire the booger on after every change.

I think I ran 10 - 15 minutes w/o oil ... When it siezed my knee jerk instinct was to slam on the gas which scored the cylinder wall pretty good.
Wish good luck to ya, hope you caught it in time.
