2004 F350 6.0L Oil Change

Guys, need some help here. I changed my oil and oil filter today. I let the oil drain on a level surface for about an hour. So I put the recommended 15 quarts in. However, after starting the engine and going on a short drive (10 minutes), I came home to see no oil on the dipstick (I waited about 15 minutes for all of the oil to drain down. I added almost 2 more quarts and now the oil is right in the middle of the dipstick. I am a little worried that too much oil is in there, however, after waiting, starting, waiting, the oil is where it is suppose to be. Just wanted some feedback.

No I did it right, however if I REALIZED THAT THERE ARE 4 QUARTS IN A GALLON AND NOT 5, that would solve my problem...

Make sense, after I did the correct math, I have 14.5 quarts. Last time I ask my wife how many quarts are in a gallon...maybe that answers a lot of her cooking problems...
