In brief: Indefinitely?...

Mild congestive heart failure, if aggressively managed with appropriate medications and lifestyle changes, can sometimes remain mild for many years, even for the duration of a person's life.
Rarely, the heart contractility even improves with medications, or with avoidance of further insults to the heart.

In brief: CHF

Mild CHF treated well could be consistent with a long life if it stays stable.
It needs the patient and medical staff to work together.
