Hi i just read your post.....with transposition of the great vessels it is commonly called TGA in most accts.  It believe it or not is one of the most common congenital occurances with babies and alot of docs are actually able to see it as early as 13 weeks of gestation or pregnancy.  What is basically means as i am sure you are aware is that the vessels/arteries are reversed or swapped out as most docs say.  In most cases docs don't even have to do surgery to correct this.  As far as what a normal life span is...the same could be asked of a healthy human...who knows....none of us know the answer to that question...in many cases as long as there are no underlying issues or structual anom. of the heart the childs lifespan is that of anyone else.  In the end tho it would be up the the childs doc to give a prognosis thru testing and i know it sounds unusual but again it is one of the most common things that can occur with a child that is still in the mothers womb and developing.  Unless your doc told you something else or there are issues w. the childs circulation you should all just go on living your lives as you always dreamed of after the doc has cleared your child...good luck and  i hope you all have a happy life...we are here for you anytime....
