Ok reading all the other things she has said and done she reminds me a lot of a friend I made in mother's group I cut ties with. She just made me feel constantly judged and I'd always leave her place with so many things running through my mind in the end I just didn't want to see her anymore.
People like that suck the fun and life out of everything. I'd just avoid her TBH. She sounds like too much hard work.

Good on you for calling her out on it.
Some people just don't realise.
If ive invited people over for a playdate and one of my kids has a runny nose or something i text the friend and say
'xyz has a runny nose but is otherwise well, happy to have you if you'd still like to come but understand if you want to reschedule'
That way ive done my bit by informing them and the ball is in their court

She sounds like a twit and not someone I'd waste my time and energy on. It sounds like you have a lot on your plate and catering to a high maintenance "friend" like that would be something I'd put on the back burner. I wouldn't get into it with her - but I'd be treating her the same way she treats you as far as SMS/call etiquette and not go out of my way to catch up

She ended up replying saying she was sorry my DS isn't well and that she didn't think her DS's runny nose was a big deal because he had it for 2 weeks already. And that she understands where I am coming from.
Im not sure i believe her with that as for my DS to come down with it pretty well asap leads me to believe her DS was either really unwell and its an actual virus, or she is lying.
My DS is terribly miserable. Burning up, green snot now like her DS had. I don't know what to think but surprised she actually responded to me at least as for far less i have been completely ignored lol! Im glad she has taken it on board. Im feeling that she probably felt she had to otherwise she loses a play mate for her DS though.
I probably sound b!tchy saying this but i do feel its best I still distance myself as she really is a lot of work. Its not a good sign on the friendship when i leave her house feeling annoyed and uneasy about the experience.

I think that when your gut or past experience tells you to back away from someone, it's never a bad thing if you do.
It doesn't have to be a big deal, just not be as available or accessible as you usually would have been.
I would have been really annoyed too if she invited me over and was sick or her DS was sick. Really inconsiderate.

Regardless of that, I think everyone should give a heads up if someone in their house is showing any signs of sickness before interacting with others. Though I wouldn't cut ties because of that alone, I definitely wouldn't want anything to do with someone like her after the other things you mentioned.
