Vanderbilt defensive problem

Playing in the "round of 128," you pick up:

8

T93

852

K97532

LHO deals and opens 1C, Polish, which can be various hand types. Partner overcalls 1S, RHO passes as do you (right?), and LHO rebids 1NT showing 18-20. Partner bids 2S, RHO bids 3H, you pass again (right?), and LHO bids 4H.

You lead your 8 and dummy is:

QJ53

AK

AKJ9

QT4

Trick one goes Q-K-9. Partner cashes the A at trick 2, and you...?

If you discourage, he cashes the A and declarer drops the 6. Now what?
