    My mom asked me to go check on my grandparents when she's not with them so I call my

    My mom asked me to go check on my grandparents when she's not with them so I call my grandparents and my mom picks up. I say:

    I thought you said you were going to be away and wanted me to come/go check on grandparents.

    Which is correct?

    'Come', since your mum spoke to you from your grandparents' house.

    "Go" would work in the original.
