I've seen that we can use MS Word to create new Blog posts.
The option is available under
Blog Tools > Launch blog program to post
Works fine, word opens with Blog kind of template, and I can publish But after the blog article is published, how do I edit the blog post using word again?

I'd recommend using Windows Live Writer (WLW) rather than Word for editing blog posts. Word is really overkill and not specifically designed for blogs like WLW is.
WLW is a free download from Microsoft:

Using Word 2010
- I went through the actions to create a new blog post to get to the Blog UI
- Use the "open existing" command
- Make edits and "publish" as usual
