Add as many commands as needed, separated with a semicolon:
<body onload="alert('Refreshed!'); resize();">

Or, add to the resize function:
<script type="text/javascript">
function resize(){
// other statements
alert("Refreshed!");
}
</script>
<body onload ="resize();">

You may have to use cookies (http://www.quirksmode.org/js/cookies.html)

I haven't yet come up with a working solution, but did do some research:
