If you click on the title of your reply (which is a link) you will get the same style edit page as you do for your original node.
As a (related) aside, if you make substantive changes to any of your nodes please ensure that you flag the changes so it is clear the content has changed. And please avoid deleting stuff because that often renders replies meaningless.
