At the time, his representatives said that he was looking forward to a quiet Thanksgiving at home.
It is unclear what day over the weekend he went to Phoebe Sumter.
Carter has fallen at least three times in 2019 in which he needed medical attention or required hospitalization.
In May, he fell and broke his hip while preparing to go turkey hunting on his Plains farm. In mid-October, he fell again at his home and fractured his pelvis.
Both of those required lengthy hospital stays.
But in early October, just as he was about to board a flight to participate in a Habitat for Humanity project, he fell and bumped his head, suffering a black eye and requiring 14 stitches.
He was not hospitalized for the fall and made it to Tennessee for the event the same day.
