First lady Jill Biden will attend Walter Reed Medical Center on Thursday for surgery to remove an object from her left foot after stepping on something during her stay in Hawaii last weekend.
Biden’s spokesman Mike LaRosa said: “Last weekend, prior to her two official events in Hawaii, the First Lady stepped on an object on the beach that became lodged in her left foot.”
She will undergo a procedure today at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to remove the object. The president will join her,” LaRosa said.
First lady Jill Biden was photographed at the first of two events she attended in Hawaii on Sunday. Her spokesperson said Thursday that she is on her way to Walter Reed to have an object dislodged from her foot after stepping on something on the beach in Hawaii during her free time there.
dr. Biden spent time in Hawaii on Saturday and Sunday after leaving Tokyo, Japan, cheering on Team USA athletes and attending the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
The first lady held advocacy events in both Anchorage, Alaska – on her way to Japan – and Honolulu, Hawaii – on her way back to Washington, D.C.
After Biden landed at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Saturday afternoon, she had nearly 24 hours to relax in Hawaii before her first event on Sunday.
Biden broke away from reporters and stayed in the presidential cabin at Marine Base Kaneohe.
The first lady did not limp on Sunday as she held events at Waipahu High School and later, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
She wore a pair of platform espadrilles.
Biden was wearing the shoes when she arrived at Joint Base Andrews Monday morning to conclude the journey.
The outing marked the first lady’s first solo trip abroad since the Biden administration took office in January.
In Japan, the first lady also played the role of a diplomat – dining with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide and his wife Mariko when she first arrived.
Biden then took part in a solo event Friday morning with Mariko Suka – an incense class at Akasaka Palace – before later going to the Imperial Palace for a reception with Japan’s Emperor Naruhito.
From the US Ambassador’s residence in Tokyo, Biden held a Zoom call with Team USA – as COVID-19 protocols prevented a face-to-face meeting.
On Saturday, she also hosted embassy personnel there for a viewing party to watch Team USA play in softball against Mexico.
