Has high fever with diarrhea and cough. What does this mean?

My son has a fever of 104. He will NOT take medicine. He will barely drink anything. He does try to sleep a lot. He has had a fever for over 24 hours....he also had diarrhea and has a horrible cough that he coughs until he throws up clear fluid. the dr office is closed, i have also lowered our home air conditioner to 68 as he is only in a diaper and i want to lower his temperature and he will not get into the tub....what else can i do to help lower the fever???? please help...i really dont want to take him to the ER as i cant afford a huge medical bill
