My poor baby has been running a fever between 101 and 105 since last night. It was 105 from 6pm until 11pm last night and he has been a lethargic mess!

We went for his 15 month check up today and they couldn't do anything but tell me that he has no ear infection and she think he "might have the flu on top of teething". Those canines are a pain in the ass!! We haven't really had teething problems up until this point

If he is not sleeping he is screaming. I don't know what to do for him
Daddy came home and finally calmed him down. This is what I found when I heard the crying had stopped (after almost an hour)

I've been praying for lil' Dexter since I saw your post last night. I hope he is feeling much better.

When my girls ran a high fever I would give them a sponge bath in cool water (not icey cold) and repeat as often as needed.

Motrin was good but I'm not sure about what dose for his age. Check with your pediatrician!

I always kept a close eye on them too. I know it can be scary and tiresome. Hang in there. :)

Oh, always make sure that he stays hydrated and drink alot during high fevers.
