Is it possible that there are pools of oil under the engine compartment that still need to work their way out? I'm starting to worry that there is an actual leak elsewhere. Information system said oil level was ok this morning. Thanks for the help.

Some oil might still be on the engine cover plate. The only way to know for sure, is to take the cover off and clean it. Then look underneath and make sure that you don't have any leaks. Very doubful that you have leaks on the engine.
