First lady Jill Biden was scheduled to undergo a procedure Thursday to remove something from her left foot that had been there since her visit to Hawaii this past weekend.

The first lady’s spokesman, Michael LaRosa, said in a statement that Jill Biden had “stepped on an object on the beach,” but did not elaborate on what the object was. LaRosa added that President Biden would accompany his wife to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., where the procedure would take place.

Jill Biden arrived in Hawaii Saturday after leading the US delegation to the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo. LaRosa said she stepped on the object prior to making two public appearances Sunday. The first lady visited a vaccination clinic before joining military families for a barbecue at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickham.
