Maybe I misunderstand completely what you intend to do.
The OP wrote: "Want to interface it to a (laptop) PC's EIA-232
interface." IMHO no possibility to access the "laptop +3V rail".
Supplying the 766x from the Li battery is also no option, since "the
battery should last several years" and 0,2mA * 40000h is 8Ah...
