How Do You Defend?

You are playing in a Regional AX pair event with a regular partner against an average pair playing 2/1 with 15-17 NT.  Your leads are 4th best from an honor and 2nd from 4 spot cards.  Your carding is UDCA (no Smith echo).  Discards are usually upside down attitude.  You lead the 5 and it goes 8, 9, K.  Declarer now takes the spade finesse and plays A,K and a  to your Q.  Partner has discarded in order the 4, 9, and 9.   Declarer has discarded the 2 from dummy on the 4th spade.
