Was I wrong to volunteer my husband to drive a close, elderly relative once a week for cardiac therapy? This is a morning appointment out of town and involves two trips each way.

One trip to pick him up (10 miles rush hour on Xway) then another one to take him to the facility (5 miles) and then back home. Also, to wait for him when he's in therapy in case he might need us for some reason.
I don't drive but I will be along on the trip to help in every way I can.
At first he agreed but then when he realized what was involved (may go on for many weeks depending on his progress) he became more and more aggrieved about the situation "I got him into."
This relative is a wonderful person (he's my kin, btw) but husband likes him very much, too, but, apparently, not so much that he wants to, with a good heart, take on all that is involved plus having to do so early in the morning as he is a night person.
Was I wrong? I'm feeling guilty yet still feel I was right in that the family involved was in a pinch and had no one else to drive him.
