1:18 AM not even close to being done

Ok, where was I.... So I left at there being 3 puppy's alive and one that died. So far Joy is being very good taking care of her pups, but then she has two more pups. After she gets them all cleaned up she has a couple more that are dead. So that makes 8 total. Joy is exhausted and I mean exhausted, not to mention my husband, who is doing all the work with Joy. Joy is so tired that Mr. Mark has to help her get the babies to suckle. Ok back to bed, for the next round. Back in bed about oh fifteen minutes, and we hear them, this time its about 3:30AM. So Mark goes down by himself and I set the alarm again for 5:00AM. Well I must of fell asleep, cause when the alarm went off I reached over to Mark and he wasn't there. So I went down to find Joy and her puppy's on a new clean bed. Joy apparently had two more that were dead, one of which Mark had to deliver. Total 10. So we take out the first bed and what a mess, we are having to mop the floor and all the way to the garbage can's outside. So 6:00AM I plug in the coffee, and we sit and enjoy our coffee watching Joy and her puppy's. Then back to bed about 8:00. At 9:00 breakfast was called, but I was way to tired and stayed in bed, but Markie went. Finally after lunch Mr. Mark came to lay down, he wasn't down more then 20 mins. when Felix knocked on our door and said one of the babies died. Mark went down and she had delivered two more that were dead. Total 12. Again Mr. Mark came to bed and one hour later Felix knocks on the door and said one of babies rolled off and is dead. So he got up went down stairs and Joy had delivered two more pups that were dead. Total 14. I finally had felt that I had got some sleep, so I was doing lots of busy work that I needed to do. Mr. Mark got back into bed about 2:45. I was doing my work when Marlin called me and said Joy had another baby that was dead. That was at 3:00 PM. Poor guy was in bed only 15 minutes. Up, and downstairs again. Bed number three was made for Joy. So then Mr. Mark massages Joy's belly, hoping not to feel anymore pups. Hooray he thinks she is done. Total 15.... 10 dead and 5 alive. So now its getting close to dinner time so Mark just went and started his daily chores. Now dinner is over and its about 7:30 and the stinking power goes out. LOL my poor husband is beside himself in exhaustion. So now its almost 8:30 and power is still not on, so Mr. Mark can't go to bed until he can turn off the generator. So could everyone that reads this please pray for Mark to get the rest his body needs, to start all over tomorrow.
Blessings

they are doing better then us actually, because the same thing happened last year. I don't think Joy could handle another litter.
