Today is going to be fun

Last night, Quinlon randomly spiked a fever of 101.2. Other than being crabby as hell, he had no other symptoms, so we theorized it is likely teething.

We had a surprisingly good night until around 6 AM this morning when we had a 45 minute screaming fit during which my thorough exam found nothing amiss and the temp was still just a touch above 101.

So far today, still no symptoms other than a temperature of consistently 101ish and crankiness. It's barely 11 AM and he is on his second nap of the day too. He won't let me set him down let alone leave his sight. I am thoroughly enjoying the cuddles, but he is making getting anything more than sitting on my ass accomplished quite challenging. Hopefully, this will pass soon enough and I can have my happy, bubbly, flirty boy back.

Aw, Sorry your boy isn't feeling too well. My pediatrician told me that fever should never accompany teething though. Hopefully it's just a small bug or something.

I've heard that but every person I know in real life involved in medicine says otherwise. I always find humor in how 'experts' all trained in something as fact based as medicine can disagree on things so much.

Either way, it hasn't been too awful... just clingy and cuddly.

How's he feeling today? I hope he's better. Have you checked with his pediatrician? I know when I worked in daycare, we would send a child home if his temp went above 101 and he wouldn't be able to return for 24 hours after last treatment (tylenol or whatever).
